This museum was set up to honor the pilots that died in World War II. There were no pictures allowed inside. However there were nice displays outside, and even a traditional bell that we were able to ring (twice). Within the museum, there were letters by the kamikaze pilots, written before they went on their missions. Kamikaze actually means “divine winds”. Their mission was to fly their planes straight into the enemy’s ships. It was an honor for them to die for their country and for this reason, the museum commemorates this.
To get there, we caught a bus from Kagoshima Chuo Station, it left every hour. The ride was about 1hr30mins and cost about 950-1000 yen.
