"In the area outside the gates of American bases, there are usually entertainment districts that cater to the soldiers. They are garish, heavily made-up neighborhoods. In Okinawa, Koza is the biggest base town, followed by Kin. When I go to Okinawa, I always visit Koza and Kin. Whenever I’d go into one of those base towns, I’d always feel slightly dizzy. Why? For the longest time, it was a mystery to me. But now that mystery is finally beginning to unravel. In my mind, I completely reject the American bases and the towns around them. But in some corner of my mind, there’s a part of me that feels nostalgic for the heavy makeup of the theater district, which is called forth by the heavy makeup of the base towns."
