The Shokaku class carriers were part of the same program that also included the Yamato-class battleships. No longer restricted by the provisions of the Washington Naval Treaty, which expired in December 1936, the Imperial Japanese Navy was free to incorporate all those features they deemed most desireable in an aircraft carrier, namely high speed, a long radius of action, heavy protection and a large aircraft capacity. Sh˘kaku was laid down at Yokosuka Dockyard on 12 December 1937, launched on 1 June 1939, and commissioned on 8 August 1941.

With an efficient modern design, a displacement of about 32,000 long tons (33,000 t), and a top speed of 34 kn (63 km/h; 39 mph), Sh˘kaku could carry 70-80 aircraft. Her enhanced protection compared favorably to that of contemporary Allied aircraft carriers and enabled Sh˘kaku to survive serious battle damage during Coral Sea and Santa Cruz.
