The thousand-person needle is a kind of amulet in Japanese culture. It is about one meter long and is stitched by a thousand women. The thousand-person needle is a gift from Japanese women when they are at home. It is used to protect the soldiers for a long time and to be lucky on the battlefield.

Superstition believes that red is a 'lucky' color that can make soldiers brave, healthy and avoid injuries, so thousands of people wrapped around their waists or wrapped around their heads can prevent soldiers from being hit by bullets. There are many Japanese soldiers who don't believe this at all, but they think that this mascot will allow them to hit the enemy as much as possible before the sacrifice. Some people wear it because they express their thoughts on their wife at home.
On the battlefield, thousands of people are difficult to clean, and they usually become very unclean. However, even the Japanese soldiers who attach great importance to the thousand people are still a lot of people.
