They aren’t back: the 75 years of Pacific War

2 4 min 3 yrs

In the Memorial Ceremony for the War Dead(held every year on August 15), the emperor and empress of Japan console the souls of over 3 million soldiers who lost their lives during the war. However, half of the bodies of the soldiers haven’t been found (those who died overseas) with their remains scattered throughout Asia. The families still grieve the losses of their kin who died during the war and are waiting for them to return.
