This flag is officially called Nisshōki but is more commonly known in Japan as Hinomaru (日の丸, the "circle of the sun").
Naval flag from the 16 th Yokaren class .
Numerous Yokaren-trained pilots carried out the kamikaze attacks on American invasion forces . Many more recruits were still in training preparing to crash into the expected American fleet preparing to invade the Home Islands when Japan surrendered. About 80% of the graduates of the Yokaren program died in the Pacific War.
very rare hard to find item .
A great display piece and conversation starter , once framed ( we can undertake this ) and mounted on the wall in your Japanese style room. Adding a unique interior design feature.
don’t miss this Imperial Japanese Military Flag !
