In accordance with the terms of the Washington Treaty ratified during 1922, the Amagi Class was canceled by the Washington Treaty, but the treaty allowed for the conversion to aircraft carriers of some ships already under construction, and Amagi and Akagi (each roughly 40% complete) were picked for this purpose.
On September 1, 1923 while still under construction Amagi was badly damaged by the Great Kantō earthquake. On April 14, 1924 scrapping commenced in her slipway.
