The Bandō POW camp (板東俘虜収容所, Bandō Furyoshūyōsho) was a prisoner-of-war camp during World War I in what is now Naruto, Tokushima Prefecture, Shikoku Island, Japan. From April 1917 to January 1920, just under a thousand of the 3,900 German soldiers captured at Tsingtao, China in November 1914 were imprisoned at the camp. When the camp closed in 1920, sixty-three of the prisoners chose to remain in Japan.
