2004 Japan Trip Itinerary

My 2004 trip to Japan included visits to many museums and monuments related to special attack forces. My itinerary below gives links to this web site's pages on these museums and monuments.

I greatly appreciate the assistance of many local people who escorted me to museums and monuments. These places and these people provided me much historical information. Also, they gave me many insights to the current images of the young men who carried out suicide attacks near the end of World War II.
