"Red Flying Dragon" was the nickname for the Japanese Naval Flying Academy. It is also the name of the airplanes used in training.
Seven buttons and an anchor was the insignia. My third brother Mitsuo was 16 years old when he signed up for the Japanese Navy flight preparatory course "Trainee." He survived the war and passed away at 88 years old - January of 2016.. I am proud of him for his courage and love of his country, he was willing to die for her.
Ten years ago he came to see me at Tsukiji Hotel in Tokyo. The man on the left is my brother. We had an Italian dinner with two bottles of red wine. Four people at the next table were astonished when they heard that my brother was a Kamikaze candidate. He had a quiet and gentle nature. He loved flying even at age of 78. He was also passionate about playing the organ. I miss him so much. In tribute and in memory of Mitsuo I will express our view of the Pacific War. Iseheijiro

I am proud of my country
I am proud to be a descendant of the HEIKE Clan. One in four Japanese have Heike DNA. Heike lost the war against Genji, however, Heike left Buddhist temples, Hiragana, Waka that later became Haiku, the kimono and Lady Murasaki. "The Tale of Heike" is still the best seller today, it is a sad story. Our Emperor also has Heike DNA.
My father, Haruo, was a sailor on the battleship"FUSO" in 1915. Japan is a maritime country while China is not. Chinese sailors are afraid of water that is well known fact.
