    Landscapes of Japan, 19, Coastal features, deeply embayed Pacific coast, Yamada.

    Coastal features, deeply embayed Pacific coast, Yamada. -- The coastline at Yamada is irregular with large bays separated by mountainous promontories that jut into the sea. (Compare this coastline with the straight one shown in slide 1.18.) This kind of coastline can be produced where rocks and geological structures trend across the coastline so that shoreline erosion of weaker rocks produces bays while more resistant rocks are left as headlands and promontories. It can also result from submergence of a mountainous land surface where the flooded valleys form bays and the mountains stand above the sea.

    Japan, 1951: Ex-Japanese soldier on pier at Matsuyama

    Just before boarding a ship from Matsuyama to Hiroshima (on Shikoku) we were met on the pier by a Japanese soldier who had fought in the South Seas, been wounded, left for dead, found by American soldiers, and instead of being shot as he anticipated, was carefully cared for until he was well. 'Here is a present of fruit which I want to give you in token of appreciation for what your country's soldiers did for me.' --This was the description to accompany this image as written by Arthur O. Rinden, the photographer. His description, which he referred to as a "script", was to accompany a slide show of the images for family and others.
