You missed the wannabe Samurai.
The person who fell in love with ancient Japan and even uses Middle Japanese in the street and for whom nothing is nicer than to relax in an onsen after having spent more than two days in several ryokan while trying to follow the old Nakasendo or Tokaido.
You will find these also in your local Koryu Bujutsu school engaged in Keiko, or on a Samurai re-enactment where the wearing of armor and daisho is allowed. This because he is not allowed to wear a daisho in every day Japan and whenever he goes to a hairdressers to ask for a chommage they look funny at him.

Now we need to find the Soryu, Hiryu and Akagi.

And this is happening in a country where Hentai, Lolicon and Shotacon are considered normal and where young girls find it perfectly normal to present themselves to business men for a date.( Enjo kōsai )............

“But there was absolutely no cannibalism,” said Mutsuhiro Takeuchi, a nationalist-leaning educator and a priest in the traditional Shinto religion. “That is not our custom.”
Mutsuhiro Takeuchi should read the history of the Japanese forces in Saipan.
It is disgusting to see Japanese revisionists on the rise. Some even believe that the Japanese military was there to liberate the Asiatic countries from their colonial opressors. Nothing is futher from the historical truth.
It would be like many Germans today saying the SS were all nice people who loved humanity.
The biggest dishonor you can do to the souls of the soldiers who fought in the war is to not tell their story, and not include the historic facts. Yes there was mass suffering on all sides. Yes even Japanese soldiers suffered from hunger and atrocities. But that does not mean they themselves did not commit any atrocity becuse they did.
