Trivia When Fumio and Yusaku are about to depart to Manchuria, Fumio mentions "Here we go to settler's paradise". This refers to the propaganda regarding the massive migration program undertook by the Japanese government called "Millions to Manchuria" that sent hundreds of thousands of peasants to settle and colonize the rural areas of northern Manchuria (Manchukuo at the time).

Goofs After their departing British friend gives them silk in an early scene, Yusaku suggests making it into western-style clothes. Satoko warns that this will go against the new National Uniform Edict. A few scenes later, Yusaku leaves for a business trip to Manchuria. While he is away, Satoko hears on the radio that the Tripartite Pact has been signed with Germany and Italy. The radio makes clear that the date is September 27, 1940. However, the National Uniform Edict was not issued until over a month later, on November 2, 1940, meaning it would not have been in effect during the earlier scene with the silk. See more »
