Photos Of 1908 Japan, Before Wars And Devastation

History tells a sad tale for many cultures around the world.  This is due to war, devastation, famine and general ignorance by other cultures.  Japan was  country that saw much destruction as a result of the world wars that would make history a sad thing for these marvellous people.

There is a reminder of these times, however, in the photos that were recently found and brought to light.  These show the fact that you need to remember those happy times.  The men, women, and children in these photos were the very same ones who would soon after become soldiers and nurses, not to mention they would all be negatively impacted by a destructive war that would change the course of history.

These photos show the every lives of ordinary people.  There is something soothing in that fact, it shows us that good can come out of bad and that you will never be able to ignore the past, but that you can look back on these happy times and find a way to make them your new reality even amongst all of the rough patches that are between you and it.  It’s interesting for sure and has done a lot of good to those who remember everything.
