Yushukan - Tokyo War Museum Photo Gallery
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Yushukan - Tokyo War Museum Photo Gallery

Hi All,

I'm fortunate to be working a gig in Tokyo for a few months and have been going museum hopping as much as I can and funds allow. We made the trip to the Yushukan - Tokyo War Museum and had good luck taking photos. I've linked below to the gallery of AFV and Artillery stuff in the museum and there's a full gallery of the museum including a very rare Judy Dive Bomber in my air museum section of the SmugMug site - if you're interested head over to the Air Museum section of the site.

At the museum there are:

Model 96 15 cm Howitzer and Type 89 150mm Heavy Gun both from Okinawa

Type 97 Tank recovered from Saipan.

Many smaller displays.

Enjoy!
VB

Yes, it's fascinating! Very controversial as it puts forth very strongly that Japan was 'forced' into defending itself by the US and has a LOT of very revisionist history. The shrine in which the museum is located is strongly associated with a glorification of the Japanese military.

Putting that aside though, it does have a lot of interesting artifacts.

Thanks for taking such detailed images of the Type 97. Always was interested in IJA vehicles and it REALLY must be nice being in Tokyo too!
