    Japanese Order ? ID Help request

    Modern made mixture of order of rising sun with paulounia leaves and order of sacred treasure. Most likely unofficial commemorative badge of some organization. Without the original case (if there is one in existence) - unidentifiable.

    This army officer (most likely captain) is wearing order of the rising sun 5th or 6th class. Could be a graduate from german/austrian military school. Another possibility - assistant military attache.

    Nice pick up but quality of photos is quite terrible. Mini and medal are milky and blurred. I don`t think so. Even the ribbons are different As for the inscription Made by lacquerware workshop Kobayashi, Tokyo Stay cool Mickey.
