The bloodshed was unprecedented in the Japanese war effort up to that point. The soldiers represented in the Museum died as Army tokkō pilots of special attack forces. The accumulation of the many articles which are exhibited in here today are due to the assistance of many friends and relatives of these deceased pilots. It was the relative's mission to ensure that the sacrifices made by each pilot would never be forgotten. The pilot's last wish was that Japan would be peaceful and prosperous once more. Today Japan is very prosperous. We should be grateful to the pilots for this.
