Photo Number 693

Two more photos of an unknown place..possibly Okinawa, Japan. The Phillipines or some other Pacific Island.
Photo Number 1 Okinawa I think
and another..
Photo 4 I think  Okinawa
Perhaps part of a bunker??

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update:
From Nancy
I'd guess the first photo was taken somewhere besides Japan, perhaps the Philippines. Why? The palm trees.
From Anonymopus:
The second photo is Okinawa or somewhere close. That is a traditional Okinawan tomb. The Japanese used them as bunkers and storage sights during the war, and American Marines and Soldiers had to check each one just in case. And Palm trees are all over in Okinawa. It is more of a northern tropical island.

  1. It is an appropriate time to post pictures of Japan, with so much this country has been through now and in the past. The whole earth has been in turmoil from disasters, both natural and man-made.

  3. Okinawa is placed far south of the main islands of Japan, actually closer to Taiwan. Palm trees are common.

  4. that is differently Okinawa, that is the type of tomb mausoleum that they use here. do a google image search for Okinawa tomb. In the Philippines they do a different style more of a western type as most of the population is christian.

    Palm trees are everywhere here.
