Do Japanese troops salute with their left hand ?

I am not sure whether it is appropriate to post this here but moderator do feel free move this tread elsewhere since it is not Macross related.

I was looking through a magazine and there is article on a movie on the SDF navy rescue divers and there is a picture of a diver saluting with his left hand ? Is this correct or a flipped photo ? As I understand it, most world armies salutes with their right hand. In addition, I have seen certain japanese anime like Gundam where troops saluted with their left hand but I always thought this is an animation error and not the norm ! :huh:

Maybe the animators suffer from the same problem most people do, when someone facing them says left, they think that it's that person's left, in other words, their own right hand. Maybe they got it reversed and by that time it was too late to do anything about it.
