The Zero!

The Zero is the famous Japanese airplane of the II World War, at the beginning of the conflict it was the best and fastest fighter plane. Here a perfectly restored Zero in the Yasukuni museum in Tokyo. I read a great book written by a fighter pilot of Japanese air force who survived the war, titled Samurai! (Italian edition) by Saburo Sakai. Really interesting and dramatic true story of his experience during the war and the post war American occupation. The Yasukuni temple in Tokyo is dedicate to all victims of the wars and for this reason haveattached, in his park a museum like this. Unfortunately is criticized by many people because, they claim, celebrate the military who brought Japan into the war and led the nation to catastropy.
