Then and Now (Photos) Sougen-ji (崇元寺) Naha, Okinawa, Japan


Here is what Sougen-ji looks like today.

Trying to duplicate the original photographer's shot, I had to stand in the middle of the street.

A black and white police car made me hurry and get out of there.



I wanted to show you the similarities and differences with this Then and Now.

Most visitors to the island of Okinawa don't realize, they had real trains here before World War II.

Stop by and see Okinawa Soba's collection of fine photography.

There, you can learn a lot more about Sougen-ji and the history of the Ryukyu Islands.

It's what makes doing these Then and Now shots so much fun.
