ONE OF THE BEST GINZA PHOTOS I HAVE SEEN...The contrasts are perfect, the composition is perfect, and the shot deserves much praise. I can see this in a large photo book about Japan. In a New York minute, this is the one of the best TOKYO shot I have seen in 60 years.

US Military Personnel on Leave In Sasebo Japan 1945/46, a photo by captainpandapants on Flickr.
ONE OF THE GREATEST PHOTOS OF SAILORS ON LIBERTY IN JAPAN I HAVE EVER SEEN. Congratulations to the photographer, CAPTAINPANDAPANTS.
U.S. Troops during the occupation era. The buildings that one sees in this photo will give the viewer a sense of what most of Japan looked like prior to the war. Personally, I like the old-fashioned architecture, the wooden structures, the tile roofs and the unique angles and lines. It was, for sure, a different world. Not all westerners appreciated the Oriental ways and means. To me, they were a visual joy, a myriad of structural pleasantries. The mystery of the orient, in my opinion, is partially due to the nature of these buildings.
