Life of the Post-WWII Japan Through Fascinating Color Pictures

The Allies occupied Japan at the end of World War II until 1952, during which a new constitution was enacted in 1947 that transformed Japan into a constitutional monarchy.

After 1955, Japan enjoyed very high economic growth, and became a world economic powerhouse.

These fascinating color pics from Tom Smith were taken by his father that documented everyday life of Japan from 1948 to 1950.
