RETURNING THE SPIRIT OF A SOLDIER: JAPAN’S YOSEGAKI HINOMARU FLAGS

Listen → https://hapticandhue.com/spirit-of-a-soldier/

--Yosegaki Hinomaru were good luck flags signed by the friends and families of Japanese soldiers going off to war. Soldiers carried them close to their hearts to remind them of their homes and families. Many became war trophies for Allied soldiers, who were under orders to search dead Japanese combatants. But now, after all these years, some of the families of veterans are seeking to return the flags to the Japanese families of the men who died on the battlefield. This is a difficult and often heart-rending moment, both for the family giving up the flag and for the Japanese family receiving back a small piece of cloth that represents the return of their relative’s spirit home after more than three-quarters of a century.--


This episode deals with war and loss, death and mourning.
