Japan: March, 1969

Photos by Neil Mishalov

These pictures were taken in Japan during March, 1969. I took a 1 week leave from my Korean duty station, and flew from Korea to Japan on an Air America DC-3 propeller plane. The plane landed at Tachikawa Air Force Base, which is located approximately 40 miles northeast of Tokyo.
