    No Japan connection, really:

    This is a membership badge for the Reichsverband Deutscher Turn-, Sport- und Gymnastiklehrer e.V. [National Association of German PE-, Sports- and Gymnastics Teachers, registered association].

    The metal badge came in a stickpin- and a pinback version, and there were also (woven and embroidered) cloth versions for wear on sports clothing.

    I believe this to be a pre-war piece. The motif of the "swastika rising as the sun" is often encountered, by the way...No connection to Japan...
