In April last year, the King of Jordan requested to Foreign Minster Kono an old tank for the Jordanian Royal Tank Museum. On August 6th this year, the request was decided to be carried out. A Type 61 tank on display at JGSDF Camp Takigahara was sent over. The cannon had already been filled and disabled and the engine had already been removed. It received a new paint job before being shipped off. Japan is to receive a Jordanian developed armored vehicle for display.

Where did that idea come from? Maybe trying to get in on the wrong day?

The JGSDF Ordance School museum at Tsuchiura a few years back responded to an email inquiry I had sent after translating into Japanese that I needed to have an active duty Japanese military person to escort me.  I beleive more recently you can sign up for a tour without this so long as it's at least 2 weeks in advance and it is structured so that the tour goes as a group, leaves at a set time, and you go from one exhibit to another on a timetable.  So, no lingering to look at their Chi Nu, for example. . .


Same condition for all.

There's no open base day?


don't they something like a history institute? I guess an author with a few published books might get a solo tour and time to take photographs aranged via the historians.

Most bases seem to have a history section, at minimum, for showing past history of the unit that used to be stationed at the base. For example, one JGSDF base in Osaka that has an airfield for its helicopters has a building that used to function as a bunker for withstanding bombardment. Its a small bunker but its been turned it the history corner for the base both before and after the defeat in WW2. The base that has the Chi-Nu has a far larger history corner. For personal tours, some adjustments to the advertised tour limits probably could be agreed on I'd imagine. And yeah, it might be that such authors might get some flexibility or whatever institutite there might be for historians. But I couldn't be sure on that.

A pair of Type 97s in which their Japanese crew were likely killed appear to be rusting away in the Northern Territories. Would prefer repatriation of these to a more respectful caretaker of them in various ways.

Some of the Russian lack of care regarding the upkeep of Japanese mediums allowed to rust away may be due, interestingly, to the decision by local Japanese officers to continue fighting after the August 15 surrender.
