KESOLEI, O. KambesHost Kambes Kesolei discusses the story behind the historical Morikawa-san, or Morikawa-Taii (Captain Morikawa).

Wakako Higuchi’s paper, War in Palau (1991), features the story of Morikawa-san as told by Timothy Ngitil of Ngeremlengui:

Morikawa arrived in Palau without informing anybody as to which airport or seaport he would use. He urged Palauans to concentrate on enlarging their farms and growing many plants such as taro, tapioca, rice and other foods.

The increased production would help alleviate the food shortage and improve Palauan morale. Because the Japanese military in Palau suffered from a scarcity of food, they decided to kill all the Palauans. The Japanese were quite positive that this genocidal plan was the panacea that would end their suffering.

Upon learning of the plan, Morikawa attempted to find a solution whereby Palauans could escape mass death and, at the same time, solve the Japanese food shortage problem. He suggested to the Japanese military officials in Palau that they postpone their extermination plans and use the natives to grow more food plants.
