Hello Bob in the O HI O :

You are correct that the cartridges are 7.7 x 58 mm Semi Rimmed, this particular round according to Ken Elks' new book on page 55 is listed as incendiary in Japanese documents and given the designation "Ma 101", this confirms only the intended use was for aircraft on the T-89 flexible machine gun, but capable of use on the T-92 IJA heavy MG as well.
I will defeer to those with knowledge of Kanji on the tag, but it does appear to be a bomb fuse, certain characteristics say it is Army but did not see one in the reference book I have.
