The Battle of Okinawa was determined. More than 200,000 Okinawans were killed in the Battle. Military bases in Okinawa were provided for the U.S. in return for the independence of Japan, and U.S. forces began the occupation of Okinawa. The encounter between Okinawa and the U.S. was forced.

Okinawa was not independently but was forcibly connected to the U.S. by war and occupation. Even now over 60 years later, the occupation and violence still continue. Okinawan culture has been created by its ironic relation to the U.S. The "off base U.S. family housing" is the beginning of thinking about Okinawa and photographs.
