Photographer's Note

Finding a Black and White picture from Japan. Taken in 1957 while I was in RR: I was an officer of the Turkish Brigade stationed in Korea at that time. Instead of frequenting bars and night clubs and department stores like most of my fellow friends during the leave, I went around Japan, and visited legendary spots like Nara, Kyoto, Kamakura, Atami, and Nikko. Nikko was not an easy place to reach and I remember I had to change a lot of trains until I got there, and I was disappointed to find rain.
This picture may interest certain viewers because it shows Japan exactly 50 years ago, the way people dressed, the umbrellas. This group was listening to a guide telling the history of the place.
Dedicated to Norbert and Francis, who asked me to post vintage pictures.
