Remains of war fieldwork peace learning

I know 鹿屋 and the history of the war

The soil "鹿屋" where the Pacific War began, and postwar period originated

Three airports (Kasano Hara, 鹿屋, kushiryo) were in the 鹿屋 in wartime.
Above all, a 鹿屋 base is a naval main base, and "the 鹿屋 talk" that a making plan of the Pearl Harbor attack was worked out in 1941 is known as a performed base.

In addition, on postwar September 4, 1945, the Operation Army achieved the mainland's first landing in the Kanahama shore of the 鹿屋. From this and others, as for the 鹿屋, the name is carved with as "the place where war begins, and postwar period originated" for a history.

War remains of "the 鹿屋" attracting attention with "0 of the eternity" in "70 years after the war"

Many people visit the war remains in Kanoya-shi to follow memory of the war now that it was past 70 years after the war. In novel "0 of the eternity," a main character makes a sortie from the 鹿屋 base, and a descendant appears in the scene visiting the 鹿屋 to follow the footprint. An airplane still flies in the 鹿屋 base now in the sky of the 鹿屋 for an active base used as an air base. The 鹿屋 is a few areas living together with "a scratch of the war" "now".
