Two letters written by a Japanese war criminal in the Tokyo Sugamo Prison. The letters are posted in 1950 and 1951. The soldier tells his family about his life in prison, Christmas day in jail and his future release. He is in prison from 1945.

The Sugamo Prison in Tokyo was during the Allied occupation of Japan after WW2 the location for suspected  war criminals as they awaited trial before the International Military Tribunal for the Far East. The Sugamo Prison was also used to incarcerate some of the convicted and was the site of the execution of seven inmates.

The prison was in operation by American military forces from December 1945 through May 1952.
