The Special Projects Committee arranged a press tour to the Ministry of Defense Ichigaya headquarters on Jan. 9. Seven participants, all regular members, took part. The highlight of the tour was the historic Ichigaya Memorial Hall. Constructed for Army Cadet School in 1937, and used for the Tokyo War Crimes Trial from 1946, it provided the backdrop for novelist Yukio Mishima, who made his last speech on the front balcony before committing suicide Nov. 25, 1970.
