All these 10,000 young 17-18 yrs old Kamikaze pilots were taught from birth to die for the emperor. But 99% of them has common written message in their last will. The emperor was not even mentioned ...The message were all addressed to their mother.... the direct translation is "Good bye my mother. Thank you very much for taking care of us. This is my light flight. I will return to you from time to time. In the night sky, whenever you see firefly, just remember that I am with them, visiting you"

Odotsu 117th Shinyo Special Attack Squadron Monument
Nichinan City, Miyazaki Prefecture
In the last year of World War II, the Japanese Navy deployed many shinyo explosive motorboat squadrons along the coast of mainland Japan in order to defend against an anticipated Allied invasion. This monument remembers the shinyo squadron deployed to Odotsu along the coast of Miyazaki Prefecture. The top half of the monument has the inscription of "Prayer of Peace," and the bottom half has the following inscription:

Site of Former Navy 117th Shinyo Special Attack Squadron Base

In April 1945 at the end of the Pacific War, the 117th Shinyo Special Attack Squadron Base was established here at Odotsu. Fifty young crewmen from ages sixteen to nineteen, members of the 19th Yokaren (Navy's Preparatory Flight Training Program) Class at Mie Air Base and third-year graduates, worked day and night with intensive training. The shinyo special attack boat was a motorboat made of veneer with a length of 5 meters and width of 1.2 meters. It was a special attack weapon that would crash into an enemy ship with 250 kilograms of explosives loaded in the front part, and the crewmen themselves would also explode and die in the attack. With the passage of 42 years since that time, Japan has achieved phenomenal economic growth and has flourished as a democratic country filled with freedom and peace.

Japan will never again start such a terrible war. This monument looks back on those times, honors the spirits of our many friends who died in battle, and offers a sincere prayer for eternal peace.
