?|The design of the Minekaze class destroyers was based off of German destroyer practices, as opposed to the British designs which had previously been the norm. Ranked as first class destroyers, the Minekaze class had an extended forecastle which was seperated by a well from the bridge to allow space for torpedo tubes in between, as well as decrease the affects of heavy seas. The elevation of the guns differentiated the Minekaze type from the other destroyers in the fleet at the time, as they were placed higher than the main deck along her entire length.<br />+

?|History=Construction of the large-sized Minekaze-class destroyers was authorized as part of the Imperial Japanese Navy's 8-4 Fleet Program from fiscal 1917–1920, as an accompaniment to the medium sized Momi class with which they shared many common design characteristics. Equipped with powerful engines, these vessels were capable of high speeds and were intended as escorts for the projected Amagi-class battlecruisers, which were ultimately never built.<br />+

?Two vessels were authorized in fiscal 1917, and an addition five in fiscal 1918. Although none had been completed by the end of World War I, the Japanese Navy decided to continue the project as many older destroyers were in need of replacement. An additional five vessels were ordered in fiscal 1919, and a final three in fiscal 1920. However, the final three vessels were built to a different design and have a different enough silhouette that they can be regarded as a separate sub-class.+
