IX YAIZU (1955)


It was 1945.

For the first time in humanhistory,the Atomic Bomb was dropped over Hiroshima.

And dropped once more over Nagasaki.


Then over Bikini Atoll,another first the Hydrogen Bomb was dropped.

There a fishing boat called Lucky Dragon saild.

The death ashes fell all around,and half a year later Aikichi Kuboyama died in his home port of Yaizu.


Once,twice,three times Japanese fell victim to the Nuclear Age.



--Afterword(May,1983)--

And not only Japanese.

Micronesians on nearby atolls all and all dusted in radioactive ash their reef utterly poisoned.

Bikinians,assured their beloved homeland was safe to return to overjoyed!

Then struck down radiation disease,cancer,leukemia.

And suffer still.

Bikini and Yaizu.

Partners by default.
