These pictures were taken in Japan during November, 1968. I took a 1 week leave from my Korean duty station, and flew on a U.S. Air Force C-130 Hercules cargo plane to Japan. The plane landed at an airbase near Fukuoka City, on Kyushu Island, the southernmost island of Japan. I took an overnight train ride to Tokyo, and made Tokyo the hub of my explorations.
