Greetings everyone.
Im curious if anyone can translate this cloth attached to a navy dagger.
I think it may be a prayer or blessing of sorts, but Im hoping to find a name/location on it, if I can. My Grandfather looted a body in Okinawa (while he was in the war), which is how I came to possess this.

Any help at all will be more then appreciated, thank you.

The right column is the address (長崎県佐世保市)山祇町三〇 30 Yamazumi town Sasebo city Nagaski prefecture. The left is the name 柳沢泰亮 Yanagisawa ? (there are several possible readings for this kanji name; Yasuaki, Taisuke, Hiroaki,,,,)

EDIT:
The given name could be 恭亮 Kyōsuke, Yasuaki,,,,.

So, if I wanted to give this back to the family, I literally have the name and address?
