Military City

201 ~ 201 / 278ページ
The Minato City area, in particular the Azabu and Akasaka wards, had many military facilities from the beginning of Meiji, so from one perspective it could be called a “Military City”. The one infantry regiment positioned in Azabu Ward and the three in Akasaka Ward were mobilized one after another to overseas territories after the 1930s, and later on, reserves, the home guard and the military government were stationed here. The units who went to war, after the war ended, burnt their military flags on location, surrendered to the Allied army, were demobilized, never receiving a soldier’s welcome back in Minato City area. The sites of the military facilities were later sold off, and reused or redeveloped.
