|NSGA Hanza, Okinawa - 1975|
|Images and narrative from Tom Shirley|
"In preparation for Expo 75, these palm trees were
imported from Guam and planted along the median of the
newly-built "Okinawa Expressway." The expressway leads to the town of Nago, on the north end of the island
where Expo 75 was held. This was part of a massive effort to improve Okinawa and included a general clean-up
and construction of a major reservoir which helped overcome routine water rationing on Okinawa."
