For his services, General Fellers was awarded the Second Order of the Sacred Treasure. The Sacred Treasure was established in 1888 by the Emperor Meiji, who was the emperor known for forcing Japan to modernize. This award, which in its present form, is similar to the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the U.S. Originally this honor was in eight classes of ascending importance, which bears some resemblance to the various classes of British knighthood. As of 2003 there are six classes of this honor. of the many types of honors, the Sacred Treasure is the most awarded honor in Japan.
If you understand devotion, you will understand Japan.
When BG Fellers awaits the arrival of the emperor for the meeting with MacArthur, he is wearing a "Class A" uniform. His right shoulder epaulet end is improperly *above* his collar, rather than the proper placement *under* the collar. During the meeting between MacArthur and the emperor, the epaulet has been placed properly. It is possible that someone might have advised BG Fellers of his uniform mistake, but there did not seem to be sufficient time or opportunity within the flow of the scenes to do so.
