Pssst, it's not a "carrier", it's a "destroyer" that just happens to be bigger than the carriers of some other countries.

Second carrier launched:

Japan has launched new Izumo-class helicopter carrier, Kaga, at the Japan Marine United shipyard in Yokohama on Thursday.

The 24,000-ton DDH-184 carrier is considered as second largest ship since world war ll. The ship has been named after the World War II Imperial Japanese Navy carrier ‘Kaga’ that was part of Pearl Harbor attack, sinking in the Battle Midway.

It is due to be commissioned in March 2017, the sputnik reported Thursday.
