Kinase-san, ex-kamikaze now making peace.

木名瀬さん - 特攻隊から世界平和へ
I met an old ex-kamikaze pilot last week in Tokyo's Yasukuni Shrine. He was attending a meeting of surviving kamikaze pilots. He spoke impeccable English and engaged me in conversation for several minutes before he had to make his way to the function.

I had his namecard and contacted him a couple of days later. We got together in the Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku on Sunday and I interviewed him. Read about it here.
