Every Japanese aircraft had a Manufacture's
Data plate, most were on the inside of the
fuselage, stamped in metal the information
would be: For example
Place of Manufacture: Mitsubishi Heavy Industry Co.

Serial Number 4240
Net Weight Empty in Kgs.

Maxium Weight in Kgs.

Most aircraft had more than one data plate on
the aircraft.
I don't understand Japanese, so I can assume
the stenciling has some of that info.
