At the end of May 1905 Mikasa as the flag ship of Vice-Admiral Togo took a part in the Tsushima battle. There were one hundred dead and injured, Admiral Togo was little wounded too. Russian fleet was destroyed. 20 ships were sunk, a lot of Russian ships were captured. 4830 of Russian seamen were killed, about 10000 were wounded. Japanese had 117 people dead and about 900 wounded.

In 1926 Mikasa was being maintained as a Admiral Togo monument in Yokosuka. Mikasa is now on permanent display, the last surviving pre-Dreadnought battleship.
