Captain Isao Yamazoe also known as "Captain Yamasoy" is a WWII Japanese officer who ordered his men to not abuse the locals–including the prisoners. His friendship with the locals saw him playing judo and even serenading with them. To foster friendly ties between the locals and the Japanese, “Captain Yamasoy” went as far as initiating “morning calisthenics (radio taiso), athletics (tennis and basketball), and cultural shows, dances and movie screenings for the entertainment of the residents.” As Bautista said, he is a good leader, smiling captain, and a friend to everyone. The locals built a shrine to commemorate his legacy as a hero.
