  • Wow can’t believe been here at Yokota for 10 years and never knew this historical memorial was here. Honored and Humbled. Thank You Japan for being such an amazing people and ally to us!!!

The fact that it has been used without being repaired for a long period of war is also shocking. The comparison with children who play as if there was no accompanied in front of the war ruins makes peace feel. How did the people who were here feel the high economic growth period? I'll try to come back when the interior is published. One of the war ruins that I want to leave to posterity. It might be better known to the public a little more. The machinery and airplane engines that surround the building are unrelated to Coco's substation or factory.
