In this July 17, 2015 photo, statues of waving soldiers and a restored fighter Hien, which was used by the Imperial Japanese Army, are on display at Chiran Peace Museum in Chiran in Kagoshima Prefecture, south west of Japan. As young army pilots took off on suicide-attack missions in the closing days of World War II, the schoolgirls in this southwestern Japanese town waved handkerchiefs and branches of pink blossoms. Chiran served as the takeoff spot for 439 pilots on suicide-attack missions, many of them also teenagers. Japan surrendered four months later. (AP Photo/Yuri Kageyama)
