From a Daily Telegraph newspaper article of Mar 27, 1906:
"Six hundred Japanese sailors have arrived in the Thames. They visit the naval insitutions at Greenwich to-day. A magnificent welcome is being prepared for them in London.
(The sailors have arrived to take out two new battleships, the Kashima, 16,400 tons, and the Katori, 15,950 tons, which have been completed in England for Japan. The Kashima was launched at Elswick, Newcastle-on-Tyne (Sir W. G. Armstrong, Whitworth, and Co. Limited), on March 22 last year, and the Katori at Barrow-in-Furness (Vickers, Sons, and Maxim Limited) on July 4.)"
