Naoki Mikami (then 12), a first-year student at the Municapal Junior High School, was wearing these belt, trousers, and underpants on the day of the bombing. At the time of bombing, Naoki was in the school ground to attend morning assembly.

Despite severe injuries, he managed to get home to his mother.

He received treatment at a relief station but died on the same day.

 

Notes written by Satsuki, Naoki's mother:

Naoki came home shouting "Mom!" as if using all the strength he had. Wearing nothing but underpants, he was bleeding from his back and shoulders.

When he got access to treatment at the relief station, he was already dying.

"Mom, you can't cry. We, the mobilized students have been prepared to lose our lives in such a big war...

Mom, please do what you can for other people...,"

he took his last breath before
