The Return of Okinawa, 50th Anniversary FDC Japan

From Yokohama, Japan. The stamps are from a set of five marking the 50th anniversary of the return of Okinawa to Japanese control. The stamp on the left represents the culture and entertainment of Okinawa and the stamp on the right represents its history. The US occupied the islands after the end of the Second World War and maintained control of them until 15 May 1972.
