that looks like a malayan uniform, not japanese, but it is similar to work uniforms worn on tarawa.

the armed forces on tarawa was made up entirely of japanese naval troops, both special naval landing forces and sailors sent to shore to guard the island and work on fortifications.

here are what the snlf at this time would have looked like. they wore both the early round ratings and post 1942 ratings as well.

and here is what workers and auxiliary troops from the navy would have dressed like on tarawa

most of this stuff is available on hikishop for a good price with the exception of the trimmed naval undershirt, but a british navy undershirt makes a good stand-in and a button up khaki shirt will play the part fine, as they wore those underneath tunics around the time of tarawa.

I'd originally thought it was part of the surrendered IJA that was rearmed to defend until the colonial powers arrived, like in Indochina.
Just thought it might be useful to someone who wasn't sure if they could do Japanese impression at the last minute
