NHK reported this afternoon that the Japanese Consulate General in Honolulu will host a ceremony in Hawaii in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack to honor both the Japanese and American service members who perished in the war. The network said that while the U.S. holds a ceremony every December to honor the American victims of the Pearl Harbor attack, the Japanese Consul General decided to host a ceremony to honor both the Japanese and American service members for the 75th anniversary this year. The network said the ceremony will be held on Dec. 8 and will be attended by U.S. military personnel. The Japanese Consulate General is reportedly hoping that the ceremony will be an opportunity to further develop friendly ties between the two nations. According to the broadcaster, this will be the first time for the Consulate General to hold such a ceremony.
