Tokyo 1947-1963 Washington Heights

After World War II, Yoyogi Park, which was a former training area for the Japanese Army, became the US Army's Washington Heights housing complex during the occupation. After the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, the Americans left and the area become today's Yoyogi Park. Below is a photo of the Washington Heights area taken by Tim Stinson:
