People very often see a slogan, “Safety-First” (安全第一) in factories. It seems that the factory where human torpedoes were produced during WWII also carried the slogan. The factory made human torpedoes “Kairyu” (海龍). According to the press, the factory, 川南造船所 in Imari, Saga prefecture, will be scrapped. (Imari is famous for Imari porcelain.)
