Originally intended as a carrier vessel for fishing fleets.
As "HIDAKA MARU" was chartered by Japan Line to cope with the increase in trade of frozen mutton (a word that is almost impolite to use now) to Japan. There was apparently an initial reluctance to consume sheep meat there, but after 1965 exports tripled from the year before. She made 14 voyages to NZ between 5/1966 and 7/1968 in this trade, until being replaced by "JAPAN KOWHAI", fully refrigerated at 7,064 m³.

Hallo Michael,
sehr witziges Design von dem Reefer mit der getrennten Brücke und den weiteren Aufbauten, und beides hinten. Ein rarer Schuss.
