  • Sources: National Archives & Records Administration, RG331, BOX #966, Folder #5, Area Case Files: To-0, Vol.3 General Information. Documents Pertaining to POWs, POW Management Branch, Army Ministry of Japan, Sept. 1945; National Archives of Japan, National Diet Library. UPDATE! - Newly found data (May 2015): General List of POW Camps Japan 1945-08-15 (PDF) - data yet to be entered into tables below.
  • Due to the date at which this data was produced by the Japanese Bureau of Prisoners of War, it naturally does not match the POW strength totals which were recorded by US recovery personnel at liberation of each camp. Totals are extremely difficult to confirm, partly due to data input errors -- red type denotes personal comments for comparative purposes to hopefully correct these discrepancies.
  • Please note that the following statistics were generated prior to the end of WWII. Totals tallied at end of war upon liberation are in {braces}; data on POW deaths added per camp, courtesy of POW Research Network Japan (death totals).
  • KEN = Prefecture; GUN = County; SHI = City; CHO = District; MACHI = Town; MURA = Village
  • PRNJ (POW Research Network Japan) links give basic data on each camp.
  • For chart of all POW camp information, see ALL-JAPAN POW CAMP GROUP HISTORY.
