1975. Okinawa, Japan. The Vietnam War has just ended.
Koza City is where the Kadena U.S. Air Force base is located.
The B-52s that attacked North Vietnam took off from here.

With the end of the war the city becomes the epicenter of a celebrative rush that lasts for a few years.
The city experiences a momentary crazed and raucous time.
A cacophonic spell where Japanese culture collides and becomes intimate with African-American trends and culture.

Ultimately it became a successful, popular shock wave.
It all dies off with the advent of the 1980s.
Keizo Kitajima visits Koza city regularly during those years and he executes a vital work, a crucial and important piece of documentary photography.
During those years Keizo realizes that the photographic exploration of reality is everything but small talk or commentary: it is an observation detached from any sentimentalism, a way to go further than what meets the eye and to document what is beyond the simple appearance.
This is Modoru Okinawa by Keizo Kitajima.
