Japan, 1947

Pictures here and here taken by the son of a U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel stationed in Japan during the Occupation.

I spend six months in Odawara 25 years ago. The station's broad plaza and the general architecture are recognizable in this picture. The Great Buddha at Kamakura is today surrounded by a large, open, stone-paved courtyard.
