After the defeat of the Second World War II, many Japanese officers performed the ritual suicide by disembowelment, called in Japanese Suppuku (stomach-cutting).

They chose to die rather than surrender, using a knife 15 cm long and cutting the abdomen from the left to the right. Under normal circumstances seppuku not immediately kills the candidate, so someone had to assist in order to relieve pain.
