Hyūga was the second and last Ise-class battleship built for the Imperial Japanese Navy during the 1910s. Although completed in 1918, she played no role in World War I. Hyūga supported Japanese forces in the early 1920s during the Siberian intervention in the Russian Civil War. In 1923, she assisted survivors of the Great Kantō earthquake. The ship was partially modernised in two stages in 1927-1928 and 1931-1932, during which her forward superstructure was rebuilt in the pagoda mast style. Hyūga was reconstructed in 1934-1936, improvements being made to her armour and propulsion machinery. Afterwards, she played a minor role in the Second Sino-Japanese War.
