Mount Kongō

Mount Kongō (金剛山 Kongōsan?) is a 1,125-metre (3,691 ft) high mountain in the Kawachi region of the Osaka Prefecture, Kansai, Japan.[1] It is near Mount Katsuragi.

The mountain has lent its name to a series of naval ships and ship classes: the Imperial Japanese Navy's 1877 ironclad Kongō; the 1912 battleship Kongō, the name ship of her class; and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force's current destroyer Kongō (DDG-173), also the name ship of her class.
