The Yushukan War Memorial Museum, attached to the Yasukuni Shrine, displays a collection of military artifacts and paraphernalia from the Meiji Restoration to the Pacific War. Controversial for its revisionist glorified account of Japanese exploits during World War II, it displays fighter aircraft and weaponry as well as exhibits of human torpedoes and letters from kamikaze pilots. The museum includes a small military history book and model shop.
