Onomichi site serves as POW memorial

Kato Jinen, an Onomichi Tourist Association board member and Buddhist priest, offers prayers to the British and American troops who lived in the former Mukaishima POW Sub-Camp No. 4 as part of a POW memorial and rededication ceremony April 15, 2013. The ceremony opened with a guitar rendition
of “Amazing Grace,” followed by remarks by Mitsuo Minamizawa, Onomichi Red Brick Society and Japan- U.K. Friendship Monument Society chairman, followed by both a Christian and Buddhist invocation. Once unveiled, a floral tribute commenced
with bouquets laid at the base of the memorial, followed by guest remarks and a song by students from the Mukaishima Chuo Elementary School.
