READ THE HISTORY OF TOKYO AMERICAN SCHOOL (ASIJ) - MEGURO

IDENTIFY PLAYERS IN 1953 NHS Junior Class Play

As the years go on, I guess we tend to become more reflective of our earlier life. We are no different from the rest of you in this regard, so I thought I would share some things from our past that may be of interest to some of our friends and acquaintances. You can expect to see things here, presented visually, that describe or show some of the things we've done, places we've been or people we've met.

 

Here are photographs of Joe's high school senior class. Joe went to school in the Far East in postwar Occupied Japan, as described elsewhere. The school he graduated from was called Narimasu, as it was located near the village of Narimasu, a suburb of Tokyo. The school was operated by the U.S. Army for military dependents and certain other eligible civilian dependents. The photos below are from his yearbook - the Sensu. Joe knows of seven of his classmates who have passed away.

Songs from our youth (?)

Here are a few songs I've been able to find dating back to 1954. If anyone has others available, please send them to me and I'll post.

Some of these are ".mp3" others are "midi" format, either Real Audio or Windows Media Player will play both "midi" and ".mp3". Arrangement and quality is generally lousy .... but the songs are memorable. To download and save any of these, right click, then "Save Target As".

Remember the old monument to Japan's First flight? Sits right outside where the back door to the Wash. Hts. Teen Age Club was.

 

The only old Washington Heights house left standing in 1981. It is located within a hundred feet of the wall surrounding Meiji Park. Does anyone have an old Wash Hts. directory to identify who lived in House #530 ? (After looking closely at an aerial photo showing house numbers, I've concluded this house, based on it's location, is really #258 . Numbers might have been changed as they demolished the houses.)

 

 

Here is a composite view of the area around Washington Heights, the old 40's - 50's era U.S. Military Dependent housing area. I've superimposed a 50's aerial photo on top of a modern day satellite image (courtesy of Google Earth). The old roads are traced in light blue. A rectangle on the left indicates where the teen-age club hangout was. A white "X" on the right indicates Harajuku station near the main entrance to Washington Heights. Shibuya station is off the bottom.

North is (roughly) to the left.
