Following one of the bloodiest battles in United States Military History, the Battle of Okinawa, a minor air strip was acquired by Allied forces. Yara Hikojo Airfield soon became Kadena Air Base. Over the next 60 years the small set of runways would transform into the single largest U.S. military installation in the Eastern Hemisphere. But personal and aware acreage were not the only things to build up over time here. Well over 200,000 human beings died violent deaths here in a period of 82 days. I don’t think anyone would be shocked to find that this place is very very haunted.
AND THERE’S A SAMURAI!
