The Kamikawa Marus were converted from motor cargo ships drafted by the Imperial Navy. They had only the lightest of armament and were unsuitable for use anywhere near the front line. Initially configured as seaplane tenders, most were converted to seaplane carriers by the addition of catapults and seaplane storage.
