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.
