The third day, we had visited the tent village of Takae, 高江 that is the edge of big North maneuvering groud for Marines. It had been used to mancuver Marines at battle in the jungle for the Vietnam war. But now, it was unnecessary because the battles in the world are not in jungle and Marines, too.
USA requests six helipads for Osprey in Takae instead of the return that ground. And our Goverment has understood the request.
Takae had been used as the village in a battle field of Vietnam; " A target village, 標的の村," that is a movie title. So the villagees unite together and are abstructing them with cars and iron railings. But as that ground is very wide, the construction vehicles were able to invade on the site from antwhere. They couldn't clse all invasion roads. As a result, two helipads have completed now and Ospreys fly. But now, as that constructions has been interrupted, there was no confusion.
After visited that tent, we went to " Ada, 安田 Kuina Freai Park." I was able to meet " Kyon Kyon "; Okinawa Rail,くいな called Yambaru Rail for the first time. I was very happy. and it has two rather good wings but can't fly, I was surprised.
In the bus, going south from Hedo point, the northernmost tip of Okinawa, to Yomitan-son, 讀谷村, the biggest village in Japan, the population is 40,000 over and having Zanpa point, 残波岬 where is the point, USA forces landed at first, I got a text from my wife, " Stoppage of Henoko reclamation work " and said it to my company at once. The bus was in uproar with that. But there are many different opinions and we understood our government didn't definitily give up Henoko base construction.
And we went to Roadside Station Kadena, 嘉手納, where we can look at Kadena Airfield of USA as it has viewing deck (4F)and study exhibition hall (3F). We can see and study the activity of the airfieldof and history of Kadena town. Ihave known there Kadena town is accounted for 80% of all town by Kadena Airfield of USA. So that is called the hill, we can see Anpo; The Security Pct between USA and Japan, 日米安全保障条約.
Lastly we visited " Japanese Navy underground Headquarters " and Shurijo Castle Park. The sides of roads, we went through, are almost the chain-link fences. I thought " After War of Okinawa " doesn't end.
