The Fallen Fortress

Check out this documentary made by journalist (and former JET !) David Caprara! He moved from NYC back to the village in Nara where he taught as a JET from 2012 to 2014 and heard that there was a plane crash there during WWII. He did some research and discovered that the crash took place on the Buddhist holy mountain of Mt. Omine, visible from his backyard. In this documentary, NHK World shows about the journey of uncovering what happened and the quest to meet eyewitnesses in Japan and bereaved family members in the USA 76 years after the war.
