"Yokosuka - it was a place that I never thought I'd go back to, a city I wouldn't want to walk in twice; it was land best forgotten as far as I was concerned. Never did I think I would go back like this.

The gloomy darkness and cold excavations of Yokosuka, where odd things and happenings were fused in a complicated interlocking, threw shadows that stayed with me for a long time, even after the city was far, far away. By getting away, I expected the shadows to dissolve and disappear, but instead, after I left, a new feeling - different from when I lived there - began to well up and take over. I felt that I had to go back there with a camera, yet somehow my legs just wouldn't head in that direction. To Yokosuka... (...)

It had been nine years since I left, but my Yokosuka was still there as it had been. The gloom had grown deeper and the excavated mountain faces had become steeper. Though years had passed, nothing of this "Yokosuka" had changed."
