Thought some of you might be interested in the brochure from the Peace Museum for "Kamikaze" Pilots in Chiran Cho. Chiran is on the south end of the southern main Japanese Island, Kyushu. The atmosphere inside the museum is very solemn, and there in very little in English in the museum. It features a lot of photos and letters of the pilots, plus there is a Ki 61, Ki 84 and most of a Zero inside the museum.

This Hayabusa is displayed outside the museum.

Here is a photo of the Hotaru, the tea house many of the Chiran pilots frequented.
