Honour at sea requires hard work ashore.

A military port is a specialised facility that supports naval operations. It can handle shipbuilding activities and create a naval force, but the port is substantial enough to allow a good deal of trade, helping commercial life in the province as a result. It is also provided with some coastal defences. Shortly after the Boshin War, the Meiji government chose Sasebo near Nagasaki as the site for a major naval base. Nagasaki itself had long been an important port and, in the later years of the 19th Century, became home to heavy shipbuilding yards. Sasebo proved its worth during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-5, when it was a coaling station and the nearest repair base to the front lines. Sasebo and its arsenal, along with Nagasaki and its yards, remained vital to the Imperial Japanese Navy until the end of the Second World War.
