JAPAN PHOTOS by Philbert Ono

*Be sure to wear a mask when traveling.

Japan-America Cable Route. With a crudely drawn map, this card shows the route of the undersea cable between Japan and America.
The cable extended across the Pacific Ocean via the Bonin Islands (Ogasawara Islands), Guam, Midway, and Hawaii. The cable also connected Japan with the Philippines and Shanghai, China.

On the upper half the card, you see the Imperial Palace on the left and the White House on the right. The caption at the center of the card reads, "In Commemoration of the Establishment of Direct Cable Communication between Japan and America." It's sad to think that these two friendly nations went to war with each other a few decades later.
