Wow. Nice. I think its January, Showa 13 (not August). Its got the Shimazu family crest on it as well. Nice ensemble. 

 

I saw a few examples on the net, but I didn't see anything that said these grass script mei where daisaku. Are you sure its a daisaku?

That is a really exceptional sword, might be worth going through the lists of high rank Japanese officers with that last name and see what turns up.

Interesting discussion (and an unexpected interesting last photo in that discussion).

Thanks for positing your sword and for linking to the Shigetsugu thread.

Shimazu Kiyoshi, Major General; Chief of Medical Department of 15th Army, Siam, by 1945. Surrendered a sword to Major General G. C. Evans, GOC 7th Indian Division, at Bangkok, Siam, 11 January 1946. 
 

From the book Shokan, by Richard Fuller. I recommend it to any collector of Japanese swords.
