War Dead Remains Hand-Over Ceremony

Hand-Over Ceremony: Exhibitions

Every year the Japanese Government sends Remains Recovery Teams to areas where battles took place. The remains they uncover are then brought back to Japan.

When the remains arrive in Japan, they are sent directly to the Chidorigafuchi National Cemetery.

At the Hand-Over Ceremony, the Recovery Team hands the remains over to the Health, Labour, and Welfare Ministry for DNA examination.
