By the end of 1947, repatriation was virtually completed from the Australian, Southeast Asian, and Chinese military districts. In contrast, repatriation from the USSR military district did not proceed smoothly, despite beginning in December 1946. To facilitate repatriation, the Japanese government designated 18 ports as entry facilities for Japanese military and civilian repatriates. From 1950 onward, however, the Port of Maizuru became the only such port. Until the entry of the last repatriation ship in 1958, Maizuru received 346 ships (in total) carrying approximately 660,000 people.
