There are about 15 "Ninety-five formula light tanks" left on Pompei island of Federated States of Micronesia, and in 1981 two people were returned due to the good will of American former soldiers. One of them was repainted and returned to Pohnpei Island.
The remaining one was exhibited in "Kyoto Arashiyama Museum of Art" from 1986, but in 1991 the museum was closed and it was transferred to "Nanki Shirahama Zero Park".
