Marketing is different in Japan...

All Nippon Airways Co. will set up a commemorative space for air disaster victims in a new facility in Tokyo that will display debris and other material from past accidents, company officials said Sunday, according to the Japan Times.

The commemorative space will display the names of more than 350 passengers and crew members who have died in ANA mishaps, including a 1971 accident in Shizukuishi, Iwate Prefecture, in which an ANA jet collided with a Self-Defense Forces plane, killing 162 people.

ANA plans to open the facility in Ota Ward by the end of March 2007.

The commemorative space is based on a proposal by an ANA employee.
