Attached is a light and breezy account of American occupied Tokyo as reported by a society magazine:

"Regardless of the festivities, the War Crimes Trials proceed as usual and the accused sit with earphones listening intently as the defense presents the China Phase."
"Japan seems to be striving toward Democracy, their interest in government affairs has broadened, and the voting in the national elections showed their arousal."

The image above depicts the Imperial Hotel. It was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1923 and it was able to withstand all the earthquakes and bombers that God and the Americans threw its way. During the post-war era it was a popular gathering spot for Americans in that city. As soon as the U.S. occupation ended, the Japanese destroyed the building.
