I can only imagine...

When you look for stuff about Okinawa on the web because your 16-year-old is on a nearly silent school trip in Nanjō-shi, you tend to find things. Like, the Battle of Okinawa (1945) killed a quarter of a million Japanese&dagger — more than Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined.

At least the United States and Japan are friends, now, right? Friends? I hope the illusion lasts. I'd like to see the Sapporo Ice Festival someday.

And simultaneously snuffed out the last authentic traces of indigenous Ryukuan culture...

Woot! The trip blogging has begun!
