Shogun-Tacit Farmers
At Kadena Air Base and several other military installations in Okinawa, Japan, U.S. military officials and local town mayors permit farmers to grow crops on unused land, an arrangement known as “tacit farming.” Most tacit farmers are from an older generation, one that’s experienced hardship and social disruptions in the past. They use simple machinery and “kamas,” sickles used for reaping. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Rey Ramon)
