original site and ruins of Manchu 731

Ping Fang District, Harbin, China

Prior to the Second World War

the Japanese Militarists had occupied N.E. China

& established the puppet state Manchoukou

ln order to expand their Greater East Asia Empire

the Japanese did a lot of preparatory work.

Some of the least known work

were the experiments on bacterial weapons.

by the Manchu 731 Squadron

This Squadron 731 had many Sub-Sections

They were:

Sun Wu,

Lion Kou,

Mu Dan Jiang,

and An Da Rural Experimental Station.

The main offices of 731

were situated in a residential district of Harbin

They covered a large area of land

The headquarters were highly classified,

and surrounded by a high tension electric fence.

lnside there were extensive facilities,

there was an animal farm,

a crematorium,

a pathology laboratory, a jail,

an electricity generating plant,

the commanders quarters,

& other sections for various experimental projects.

By February 1945

the Japanese forces were suffering losses on the battle front

to win the war by biological warfare

the Military Headquarters reinstated a Lt. General to be the

Squadron commander.

Yet this person had previously been relieved off this post

because of corruption.

This man, the inventor of the lshit Water Purifier

a military medical doctor, Lt. lshii Shiro.

A group of young soldiers were sent to Harbin to

provide new blood for this squadron.

The banks of Song Hua River,

When will they come to pick us up?

Captain Takehara's gone to Bai Hua Liao

to find our new sergeant.

He's been gone for almost an hour.

Why aren't we allowed to go to Bai Hua Liao?

This place is freezing cold

Yes, it's similar to Chiba Prefecture

l think it's much colder here

lshikawa, don't you think so?

lt makes no difference,

we aren't going home anyway.


lshikawa already misses home after leaving

Mom for a few days.

He is just a Momma's boy,

he even broke down & cried when his

mom saw him off.

But you cried too!

No. l didn't!

But my mom & sister did.

Yes my mom cried too.

l didn't cry.

but l felt really bad.

My father was killed fighting in China.

So was mine!

So were my father and my elder brother,

they died fighting in China.

This kind of food is even hard to get back home

in our Japan.

Did you know that?

Drag him out!

Yeah! Stuff it in!

The original building housing

the Manchu 731 Squadron.


Doctor lshii's arrived at the H.Q.,

would you...

Yeah, l'm coming.


Catch the ball!

Dr. lshii!

General Kikuchi.

You still look like the same great lshii.

Squadron 731's lshii.

Welcome back, lshii!

Lt. General lshii's returned to the corps!

ldiots! Listen!

l'm the new Section Head, Captain Kawasaki.

From now on you are in the Kwangtung Army,

members of the 731 Squadron Youth Corps!

lf you get the chance to go to Harbin,

weather you leave or your day off,

you must change into civilian clothes before leaving,

& when you return,

put your uniforms back on at Bai Hua Liao.

lf you run into any other Japanese

or if you are stopped by a patrol,

you will not reveal your secondment to this squadron.

ls that clear?

Yes, Sir!


lt's almost three years since 1942

A toast to you and your brothers reunion.


Thank you, Sir.

Now, Gentleman,

l've not been here for the last couple of years

but l know all about what has been going on here.

l've looked into the research done by Mr. Kitano

and l think it has been handled wrongly.

What we need most now

is to increase the production & the number

of bacteria.

We must use bacterial weapons in the war
