  • Aboard a ship from the port of Tokuyama, arriving in about 30 minutes. Kaiten Memorial Museum Yamanote about 15-20 minutes walk from the harbour. It is towards the end of World War II, young precious life lost due to torpedo the firebase. And letters and mementos of their Memorial, and thought. It is a place worth visiting at least once.

  • More naval officers in the end World War II, traces the deteriorating situation in "torpedo" suicide weapon to steer people towards "kaiten" made. In the Navy Yard had originally become excessive "type 93 oxygen torpedoes" to the structural constraints, many were wearing a pilot's seat is very narrow, seat diameter of only 1 m "incomplete", was. Charge times the nature of type 93 torpedo with a crew down to RAM a typical "suicide weapon" was. Executives say cannot be allowed as a weapon to get crew escape facilities initially still cannot solve the problem, even though weapons are employed. It was the kaiten aboard submarines and carrier went to war, were fired by the instruction, even if the tadori着kenakute purpose ship to recover the lead fire = death to ungodly things. In addition because of the difficulty of handling many accidents during training, there are martyrs. The kaiten and the driving force behind reviving the war remained in the infantry landing craft, a destroyer and supply ship of three ships led to the sinking. 143, were killed including the duty, on the other hand young average age of 21.1 went scattered into the ocean. It is one of the little island, Yamaguchi Prefecture, Otsu (oodzu) Island, Seto Inland Sea. Kaiten Memorial Museum umashima Island Elementary School on 0/1968 (1968)-11-20, opened. Then redesigned 0/1998 (1998) 11 / 8, today. Personnel were killed, and other exhibits many artifacts in the kaiten on suicide sortie to memorabilia crammed with are side by side. Cares outside erected it there are many indoor exhibits to see and I think that's the "kaiten" of overwhelmed by the number on the nameplate of the kaiten fatalities along both sides of the aisle to the Museum entrance gate and monument. You can enjoy the extensive peaceful Seto Inland Sea is located on the heights of the island State, but on the other hand must not forget that suicide island was large Tsushima in more than 70 years ago, and again notice. Is not to mention the right or wrong of the war now, but it is as it during World War II family and country feeling, sorties over the life of their own, young adolescents who had certainly "historical" must... I thought so.

  • I would want to know if it kamikaze special attack Corps and compared to much lower awareness kaiten, means a lot of people came to look at. Also, I think comes from reading a book next to Steven Buchanan by "no exit"an increased level of understanding further. This is the place to come once the Japanese.
