    The leaves on their really remind me of the medals of the Order of the Rising Sun.
    Google Image Result for http://www.jasmis-us.com/images/OrderOfTheRisingSun.JPG - note the portion above the sunburst

    But beyond that, I have no clue

    ( odburkhart, these are paulownia leaves that are displayed on "Order Of The Rising Sun" medals. )

    The pin is likely some type of war support badge.

    That is a Marshal's ( Gensui ) badge, an honorary rank created in 1898, conferred on distinguished Generals and Admirals. This is a very high award and very scarce. Copies of this badge are being made in Japan and pop up on Ebay from time to time. What does the reverse side of your badge look like? Jim

    That looks like one of the copies to me. Real enamel Japanese awards are of astounding quality. That one is not.
