Completed on 6 June 1944, Take was assigned to Desron 11 of the Combined Fleet for a month's training, then was assigned to convoy escort duties.
On 3 December, Take was in Ormoc Bay, escorting convoy TA-7 while it landed reinforcements from Manila. Three American destroyers swept in just after midnight in an attempt to destroy the convoy; the ensuing battle saw Take's sister ship Kuwa sunk by gunfire and Take driven off with moderate damage, however in return the USS Cooper was hit by torpedoes and sunk.
Take would continue performing escort duties for the remainder of the war, and was in Maizuru for the Surrender of Japan.
Immediately postwar, Take was used as a repatriation ship. In 1947, she was turned over to Great Britain and then scrapped.
