Bringing You The Wealth of Japanese Aviation History
Arawasi was a Japanese term meaning "Wild or Violent Eagles", used as a nickname given by the Japanese to aggressive fighter pilots. It is also chosen for this impressive magazine that covers Japanese aviation topics.
Founded George Eleftheriou and his wife Kiri Domoto-Eleftheriou. A range of other collaborators and contributors include Paul Thompson, Dr. Higuchi Tatsuhiro, Mike Goodwin and Peter Starking, plus many others. Contributors and authors include many including Henry Sakaida and Alfred Weinzierl and other well known Japanese researchers and authors.
First published in July 2005. Issues one through five five are described as 'homemade' issues. None the less, each of these is an impressive collection of research, artwork and veteran profiles. These are available as back orders.
Probably the only such specialist magazine in english, Arawasi covers a range of topics, including history spanning prewar through WWII, aircraft markings and other obscure history.
Each issue is lavishly illustrated with rare and never before seen period photos. Also, detailed aircraft artwork and cockpit views. For any reader with an interest in Japanese aviation, there is something for everyone.
This impressive magazine is a subscription must! I look forward to future issues and publications from Arawasi!
Issues six onward mark a new look for the magazine: full color layout and magazine format.
