2013-2014 Go Big Read: A Tale for the Time Being : Kamikaze Pilots
Chiran Peace Museum for Kamikaze Pilots
From the website:
"Chiran, which served as the main kamikaze sortie base for Japanese Army attacks on Allied ships around Okinawa, has become the principal place that Japanese people associate with kamikaze pilots. The Chiran Peace Museum for Kamikaze Pilots opened in 1975 on the site of the former Chiran Air Base. Chiran also has several statues and memorials related to kamikaze pilots, and stone lanterns dedicated to the pilots line the town's main street and the road leading to the museum."
