JMS Welcomes Sea Cadets
Japan Marine Science Inc. (JMS), an NYK Group company, welcomed about 20 students from the U.K., Canada, Hong Kong, and the U.S. taking part in the Japan Sea Cadet Corp international cultural exchange sponsored by the Japan Sea Cadet Federation.
JMS offered a lecture about ships and used its ship-handling simulator to give the students the opportunity to try their hand at navigating a cruise ship from Osanbashi Pier in Yokohama through the narrow Kanmon Straits, a busy waterway known for its strong tidal flow.
A cadet commented: “Unlike cars, I found that the ship continued to bend even when I returned the steering wheel” and “I felt reality and was impressed handling such a huge vessel.”
The company looks forward to continuing to encourage children’s interest in ships and nurturing a greater awareness of maritime affairs.
JMS is a global specialist in marine consulting, established with the aim of gathering a wealth of know-how regarding ocean transport that the company has accumulated over the years and the strength of skilled engineers with rich experience, and developing a business that responds to the new era.
