|Map of Guadalcanal showing crash site and escape route
The red dot is the area where A6M2 Zero piloted by Harada and B5N Kate piloted by Kuno crashed on October 17, 1942 about 500 meters apart. The red circle is a special ningengyourai kichi (engineers), where Harada reached after walking from the crash site with Sato. Cape Esperence is where wounded and sick soldiers were evacuated during early February 1943.
