Kitano is family name. His last name was not Kichiano, but Kichinai. Very rare name. I firstly see this name.
北野吉内 was dead in 1956. In his last days he was a board member of Asahi's subsidiary issuing English paper Asahi Evening News . This paper was succeeded by International Herald Tribune. This paper was a joint work of Asahi and NY times when founded in 2001 but it seems Asahi already retreated.
The following is a report by Kitano in 1929 of Graf Zeppelin airship (germany to Japan, but he was on his way from New York, after his stay 1925-1929).
