Got these bayonets from my late uncle's estate. I had to research for a while to find out their origin, but was able to get the information I needed. I took a glamor shot with some other things like my Grandfather's 4th MD patch, some service medals, Marine devices, and a lovely 1942 dated 20mm round.
The one on the bottom of the second image (Toyoda marking in 3rd image) is a late war, bare bones model which still has the wooden scabbard. The top one (Tokyo mark in 4th image) is an older version (pre-WWII?) with a full metal scabbard which has (unfortunately) been cut down to a shorter dagger like size.
If anyone has any other information to add, I would love to hear it.
