Chitose was designed and built in San Francisco in the United States by the Union Iron Works. The vessel was the second major capital warship to be ordered by the Imperial Japanese Navy from an American shipbuilder, and the last to be ordered from an overseas shipyard. The cruiser's specifications were very similar to that of Japanese cruiser Takasago, but with slightly larger displacement and overall dimensions, but with identical gun armament and without the Bow Torpedo tube. However, internally the ships were very different, with Chitose having 130 watertight compartments, compared with 109 in Takasago.
