As you can imagine, photos of that area are a bit sparse. Everything I could find is below, lightened for better visibility. There was a walkway that wrapped around the rear of the bulkhead, sitting right above storage for a boat. Sounds like it's just placed too high by Fujimi.

Thanks Dan. I think you are correct that Fujimi simply has it too high. I will see if I can determine the actual height of the platform off the boat deck.

It was very similar to the platform on the Shokakus. Just thought of these pics:
