Does anyone know if Japanese service information/records for WW2 era servicepeople exist?

Does anyone have any identified items?

I know that there are items out there with names &/or units on them (I have a couple), but I was curious if there is any research potential possible here.

Most Japanese military records were destroyed during WWII, in particular during the fire bombing of Tokyo. Any records that do remain will only be released to the next of kin. Hence, unless you can find your recipient in public information such as published books it is not possible to research the individual.
