Forest Scene, Okinawa

Forest Scene (Okinawa) - Japan  1966

While I was stationed in Okinawa I started to study the Japanese language. Somehow I got in touch with a Okinawan resident about my age (can't remember how) for the purpose of exchanging language skills. (Needless to say, his English was far superior to my Japanese.) On the weekends I took a bus to a particular stop outside of town and walked to his house in the country. I could be wrong, but this might have been the scene: a forested hillside with haze in the distance, some clothes drying and an overgrown cemetery down at the bottom.

Then again, maybe not!
