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.
