The horizontal wooden bar has a metal cap with a pink tussel at both ends. In the upper main body, there is a graphic design based on a combination of sun rays, a cherry blossom, and a fan with printed quotes of “Five Holy Precepts” from “The Imperial Precepts to the Soldiers” in 1882.

The military man must be humble.”
Below the army star symbol, there is a red kanji meaning “celebration” (祝) and a black kanji “enrollment” (入営.)
