Japanese Military

The Michigan Traveling Military Museum features a number of interesting captured Japanese military items that were brought home as souvenirs by our returning servicemen. MTMM has a nice selection of Japanese (samurai) swords, daggers, field equipment, flags, hats, helmets, insignia, medals, patches, uniforms and more. These artifacts are excellent educational tools to help better understand the Empire of Japan. Our display of these artifacts is not meant to glorify the Japanese empire. We feel their inclusion to our museum is very important as they help to tell the story of how Japan was gradually transformed into such a brutal and evil state. We are actively purchasing items of this type for our collection, so please check back with us from time to time to see our new additions.
