Yokosuka/Kawanishi K5Y1 "Akatonbo" (Willow)

From November 3, 1942 a three day meeting was held in Tokyo with men of letters from Japan, Manchukuo, Mengjiang and the Reorganised National Government of China. After the meeting participants visited Kasumigaura Kokutai where they had the opportunity to see in person the young student pilots of the IJNAF and their aircraft, Type 93 Intermediate Trainers or Yokosuka K5Y1s,  as can be seen in this photo from a vintage publication of the time.
