I had something that I had wanted to see in the Submarine Museum. They are; the records or items related to 10 brave Japanese submariners who had dared to attack military vessels at the mouth of Pearl Harbor at the cost of their lives. They were trained to operate the midget submarine in a small fishery village near my office. The Japanese-style inn, rhokan, in which they stayed for their training camp, is preserved even now and their memorial ceremony has been performed every Dec. 8th, the Japanese time of the attack on Pearl Harbor. While wandering to and fro in the museum, I found it finally. That was items about one of the submariners who was captured due to the mechanical accident of his midget submarine. The backdrop of the picture of his midget submarine being stranded ringed a bell with me. That had been taken at Windward on the east coast of Oahu island. This area is now known as one of the best places for marine sports.
An article admired the submarine technology of Japan showing a submarine model in which a hangar for bombers was equipped.
It seemed that it was beyond the U.S. authorities. There were some exhibits outdoors, and a Japanese manned torpedo, Kaiten, was displayed with the simple description, "Suicide Torpedo". If the meaning of "Kaiten" and the background of its development were added to it, it would be better.
After the museum, I headed for the Battleship Missouri Memorial by shuttle bus. The last picture shows the USS Arizona Memorial on the right and the next destination of the Battleship Missouri Memorial on the left.
