Final Testament and Letter - written by major Hajime Fujii -

<Context>

It was a gusty and cold day in December.

You lost your lives in Arakawa River. You died with your mother before I die in order to meet my determination that I give my life for the country. I mourn my young children's death. I hold you dear, who died as if you were smiling.

I shall get after you soon. When we meet next time, let me held you in my arms without hesitation, and let's go beddy-bye on my chest.

Please wait for me without crying until I go to you.

Dear Kazuko-chan, please take care of Chieko-chan when she cries.

Then, Good-bye for a while.

I'm sure to serve with great distinction in the front, and I will go to you.

Well, Kazuko-chan and Chieko-chan, please wait for me until then.

In December 1944, Major Fujii’s wife drowned herself and their two daughters in Arakawa River near the flying school, leaving behind a note explaining that she had taken this action to free him from the role of being a husband and his wife so that he would be free to fulfill his obligations as a soldier without compunction, hesitation, or regret. It is his letter to his two young daughters written after they had died.
