Kyushu Travel Guide

Tachiarai Peace Memorial Museum


The main exhibit room displays a few letters and other items of kamikaze pilots who died in battle.

One case has photos of about 50 kamikaze pilots from Tachiarai Air Base and includes the following

information on each pilot: name, unit, plane used, date of death, and air base of final sortie.

The museum does not give any historical summary of the kamikaze operations but rather

focuses on the stories of the pilots stationed at Tachiarai Air Base.
