Training ships, etc.
The training ships share practical education and investigation research in various sea areas from the one near Japan to another far from Japan. Practical education includes navigation, operation, marine observation and various fisheries. Although the main role of the training ships is practical education of related subjects on the sea, visits to or investigation of fishery or port-related institutions or facilities are also implemented on domestic or foreign ports of call. The investigation and research areas are from coastal waters such as Tokyo Bay and Sagami Bay to Kuroshio current area to the equator and the Antarctic area.
The training ships belong to School of Marine Science
She implements practical training on board and investigation and research in the Pacific, the Indian Ocean, the Antarctic Ocean, etc., as well as teaches the students of Advanced Course of Fisheries advanced marine technology through ocean navigation.

Among the logistic systems of intermodal freight transport with sea, land and air routes, the sea transport has been focused on while roads and airports are intensely packed and crowded. To study safe and efficient operation of a new ship, we implement experiments and practice using the ship with the latest equipment.
- The gross tonnage: 425 t
- The whole length: 49.9 m
- The operational speed: 14.1 knot
She is used for supporting sailing practice and cruising, and experiment trainings Also, as she can establish a computer network with the university via the satellite, it is possible to implement meticulous experiments based on the detailed data on navigation, system and environment acquired during navigation.
- The gross tonnage: 19 t
- The whole length: 17.8 m
- The operational speed: 23 knot
