It would be elementary to assume that the trajectory of Kirishima's youth as a radical activist must have been, apart from the background of his personal circumstances, blowback from America's war in Indo-China that left 3+million dead in its wake and his country's complicity in those war crimes.

The guy did it his way, went out on his own crown and didn't frown about it. As a matter of fact he smiled and was never caught. The question is how did this guy hide in Japan after all these years on the run? Was there help?

He surrendered the info and was not captured. Not a plus mark for the cops.

No mention of expression of remorse or apologizing for his crimes. He got away with murder. Lived the typical salary-man life incognito. Got to rub the cops' noses in it just before he checked out. The villain won in this story.

On the run for most of his life. Sounds like hell.

I always thought the picture of him smiling was a woman.

I’m sure he led a full and interesting life and the fact that he was never caught is something. The guy should have wrote a memoir but I’m sure his story will still be turned into some kind of film or miniseries.

Looks like he had the last laugh really, always found it odd that he had this smiling pic on the wanted lists compared to the stern looks of the others.
