Ozushima island is a short boat ride from Tokuyama Port near JR Tokuyama Station. The island is known as the training ground for kaiten manned torpedoes during World War II. A facility used to train kaiten pilots still remains and the Kaiten Memorial Museum explains about the kaiten and the suicide kaiten pilots. Also see my Google Map for major sights.
