Still turning Japanese...
Corne Rodenburg was there last October/November and had a very good time...During his three weeks of photography he 'only' shot 53 films, but because of the 11 September disaster the security level was high. Here are some notes from his trip:
Kasumigaura (Army) Base they politely requested us to go away. The photo
opportunities at this base are very good because you are able to get close
to the taxiway. At other bases we were questioned and photographed by
police detectives and base personnel. At Misawa the Americans were very
nervous and after one and a half hours USAF Military Police, US Intell,
Japanese detectives and others surrounded us! But, after a half hour and
writing down our personal details they wished us a pleasant day. When
the aircraft are using the runway from south to north you are quite easily
able to photograph a F-4 with 300mm lens."
