Yokosho K2Y2 - Etajima - 海軍3式陸上初歩練習機 江田島海軍兵学校

In March 1941 Asahi reporter Hayashida Jugoro had the chance to visit the aviation section of the Imperial Japanese Naval Academy in Etajima (here) and the photos below from a vintage publication accompanied his brief article.

In this most interesting and rather rare photo of a Navy Type 3 Primary Trainer (Yokosho K2Y2), a design based on the Avro 504, all the details of the Gasuden "Jinpu" engine are clearly visible.
