Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe poses inside a T-4 training jet plane of the Air Self-Defense Force's Blue Impulse flight team at the ASDF base in Higashimatsushima, Miyagi prefecture on May 12, 2013 as part of his inspection tour of the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami disaster areas.

The number 731 reminds people of Unit 731, which was a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army that undertook lethal human experimentation during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II.
