I'm not positive, but I think these are Japanese Navy sailors.



  1. Getting ready for the Admiral. . . .again.

  2. It is astonishing that wherever guys undress, a camera seems to be immidiatly at hand 📸, even in those long-gone times. As poor as the recording quality of the picture is, the old photo has a great charm. ⭐ It shows a completely unconstrained, natural everyday scene of male nudity in the community life of this group of Japanese sailors. Work, meals, leisure, and scrubbing the dirt off the body publicly on deck, of course, was done together. A really nice snapshot of the life of these all very handsome sailors. ⚓

    1. Given the Japanese affinity for photography, there are surprisingly few photos of nude military from that country. Maybe they took it up after World War II.
