1960's Image from the Village of Oku in Okinawa

B&W photo showing village, traditional homes and terraced hills

Museum Photo

Not all museums allow photos to be taken so, it's best to inquire, before entering.

Whenever permissible, look for old, framed photos, hanging on the walls.

The wording below this image is written in Japanese. Google helped here:

"See the terraced fields behind the shop 1960's."

Well, I came to this island, the first time in the 1960's and, I got an idea.

Wanna make a bet, no one up there (my age) remembers where this photo was taken from?

We'll just have to go back up there and see.

It could make for another Then and Now from Oku Village.
