    I think you would be best served giving it a wipe off and then try some better photos ....are there any other stamps or markings to the base that are not shown ?

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    as most of the Japanese navy is at the bottom of the sea's this would be a rare item.
