Yasakuni Shrine, Tokyo April 2000

Visited the Yasakuni Shrine in Ichigaya, a suburb of Tokyo. There are 2 aircraft on exhibit, a D4Y Suisei Comet Judy and a MXY7 Ohka Cherry Blossom Gliding Bomb. Again, I used 800 ASA film pushed to ASA 1600 and a 28-70 zoom lens. The room has some very bright lights that you have to avoid. Also, there are some very good aircraft models in another room.

Aircraft Models

The lighting conditions for the models was very difficult. Let me know by e-mail
if I have mis-identified any of them; some of them are quite dark and without good detail.
