Omura (129.968E 32.900N) is a port in western Kyushu near Nagasaki. There was a naval air station here, which based Omura Air Group with 36 A5M Claude, 12 B5N Kate, and 16 B5M Mabel

Dai-Nijuichi Kaigun Kokusho was a naval depot that produced a small number of Claudes:

Aircraft Type Average Airframes Per Month Starting Month Ending Month
A5M Claude 34 1942-1 1944-12

This was raided by 20 Bomber Command on 25 October 1944 and 6 January 1945, which apparently put a halt to production.
