Wakamiya was a seaplane carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy and the first Japanese aircraft carrier.
She was converted from a transport ship into a seaplane carrier and commissioned in August 1914. She was equipped with
four Japanese-built French Maurice Farman seaplanes. In September 1914, she conducted the world's first naval-launched air raids.
