Nakajima Hikoki KK 中島飛行機株式会社 (Nakajima Hikōki Kabushiki Gaisha) evolved into Fuji Heavy Industries 富士重工業株式会社 (Fuji Jūkōgyō Kabushiki-gaisha) after the end of WW II. Under license from Beachcraft, Fuji produced T-34 Mentors. Later, the fully aerobatic Mentor was modified into the Nikkō (日光市, Sunshine) to also perform as a four place liaison and training aircraft for the Japanese Self Defense Force.

This particular aircraft was in the Valiant Air Command Warbird Museum* in Titusville Florida USA, on loan, during 2008 but has since left.
