Nagara (長良) was the lead ship of her class of light cruiser in the Imperial Japanese Navy.[3] She was named after the Nagara River in the Chūbu region of Japan.
Nagara, as with the other vessels of her class, was intended for use as the flagship of a destroyer flotilla, and it was in that role that she participated in the invasions of the Philippines and the Dutch East Indies after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
