What are these WW2 Japanese tanks??
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

"Taranov" may be able to help on this (as these are his own photos..). Which are the two tanks that were restored to running condition? Could we see few pictures of before/after restoration please?

The Type 95 looks like the one on the pdf, "Type 95 Ha-Go – Unknown exact location (Russia) – running condition
This tank was rebuild to running condition with a GAZ-41 engine from BRDM-1 and a modern gearbox. More than 50% of armor plates
were made from scratch, it has new built tracks, roadwheels, gun and other small details (“Taranov")"
I'd guess the Chi-Ha has a similar pedigree, both ex-Kuril Islands?

Please Yuri, could you post an old photo of the Chi-Ha, so that I will know which one of the Chi-Ha's on Shumshu was restored to running condition.. there were several wrecks there.
