I can't believe that no has listed website "Nihon Kaigon", which is probably one of the nicest sites on the web dealing with the IJN.

Also, see the thread I posted on the 1:10 scale Yamato on display at the Kure Yamato Museum, Japan.

Playing around with a translator, I stumbled across a very interesting site (which I at least didn't see above), Requiem of the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy. The link to the translated Home page is here:

http://209.85.171.104/translate_c?hl=en ... gXFurhDmqg

Regrettably, the index uses a graphical button system for links to its subordinate pages, which don't translate...I haven't fully explored the site yet, but so far there are tons of images, though often I can only guess at what I'm looking at - not everything seems to translate, in addition to the limitations of any translator's output. There are photos of uniforms, badges, ranks, weapons, photos of photos, all kinds of gear from a variety of fronts, a few "in field" photos etc., etc. The pages are LONG. My interest is in the IJA; after the "Intro page", the letters start ending in an alphabetical sequence, starting with "a"...and goes up to "m." Then the Navy starts....it took me more than hour to get that far into the site, and I don't know what else might be on this available of the Home page above! Translated navigation buttons appear and the bottom of the pages...

Translated "Intro page" I started from (Army material starts here):

Translated Navy Page:

I just finished to refit my site 'Organization of IJA&N'
http://maisov.oops.jp/e/
to Mediawiki version
http://maisov.if.tv/m/index.php/Main_Page

I moved hosting provider seeking for better PHP5 environment. The contract for the old server remains for half an year, but anyway please renew your bookmark to newer site if you were interested in my site. At least Wikipedia compatible in-site-search would be useful.

Website on Japanese Armed Forces in the Philippines

"Tears In The Darkness: The Story of the Bataan Death March and its aftermath" attempts to look at war and its aftermath through the eyes of all the antagonists, the men on each side. In May 2000 we spent a month in Japan interviewing twenty-three former Imperial Army soldiers who had fought on Bataan. (Three of these men had also taken part in the atrocities that followed the battle.) Our Japanese sources were remarkably candid and forthcoming, and these long interviews gave the book a unique point of view and made it a different kind of war story. Working with questions we sent in advance, our Japanese associate, Kyoko Onoki, combed the country and found our sources, then accompanied us on a trip of some 1,800 miles across two of the Japanese home islands to interview the men. The three men who talked candidly about taking part in atrocities did so, one said, because, "it's time the world knows about these things."

Greetings:

I'm brand new here, and wanted to alert interested board members to the existence of my website devoted to the Imperial Japanese air forces in WW2.

I have hundreds of previously unpublished photos posted as large files.

Not bad artwork on the subject either - if I may say so myself! :)

Thanks, all!

Does anyone knows what happened to Lt.Amuro's site:

http://imperialarmy.hp.infoseek.co.jp/

I can't access it since late last year. Has it been moved somewhere else?

Thank you!
