Yokosuka K5Y1 "Akatonbo" (Willow)

A photo from an April 1944 magazine showing a Willow being pushed out of the hangar. 
The setting and the uniforms suggest Japan mainland, most probably Kasumigaura Kokutai
Note the dark brown boots introduced in 1940 and the blue winter caps (the summer caps were white). 
Overall color of the plane is trainer orange.
