M/S Japan was my home for about a year in 1973-74. The ship's trade was Europe-Far East-Pacific Ocean and I had the pleasure to be on the air with its call sign SFYT from many rare places around the globe. M/S Japan was built for The Swedish East Asia Company at Eriksberg, Göteborg in 1950. Tonnage 10 000 dwt, speed 18 knots, crew 39 and 12 passengers.
The photo, off Dover, is from my very last voyage, Rotterdam to Yokohama, many years ago... But I am still on the air! Today I am active with SFYT on ham radio, from my summer-QTH in southern Sweden, with the old call sign only a little bit adjusted.
