This is actually a J1N1-F, a proposed recon variant that wasn't continued with, note the spherical 20mm turret behind the pilot's position. http://www.ww2shots.com/gallery/d/6845-2/j1n1-s-drawing-ww2shots-air+force.jpg

Nakajima J1N1-R with experimental turret with a 20mm cannon. Most Gekko's were used in kamikaze attacks and carried two 250kg/551 lb bombs. Of interest was the Sakae 21 and 22 engines driving opposite roating propellers, like the famous Lockheed P-38. A total of 479 aircraft were built. Only one aircraft survives today, it is on display at the Nationa Air & Space Museum located in Washington, DC, USA.
