Dissent is as American as apple pie. The Founding Fathers even enshrined the idea in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. But about 150 years after them (and 72 years ago this week), the United Stated Congress panicked, started seeing threats everywhere they looked, and established the House Un-American Activities Committee, also known as HUAC.

The abandoned US Air Force (USAF) base in Tachikawa is a bramble-choked memento from the early days of Japanese/American war and peace. It was annexed by the USA shortly after World War II, in co-operation with the still-active nearby Japan Army (SDF) Base, then abandoned in the 1970`s as the Vietnam war came to a close. Its three huge chimneys are still visible from the exterior, brick-red and lined up like masts on a rudderless ship, slowly sinking deeper into the smothering sea of green jungle. Its airstrip now swims with weeds, and bamboo forests have grown through the foundations where buildings once stood, patrolled by old men on bicycles keeping a watchful eye on the 10-foot perimeter fence.
