Currently the old ball field and a newer building constructed near it are used as a community center for the village of Kuba. A monument to past usage is constructed in the easternmost area of the field. Below is a photo of the monument provided by Mark Payne.


From Timothy Langley:

KAIRAKU
WAGAKUKU
(roughly "Wagaku Ku Memorial Field")

At this site before The War, a peaceful village known as Kuba existed. Only a simple community, it was reduced to ashes as a result of The War. Finally on March 31, 1983 as a consequence of Reversion, the 36 year period of exclusive use by American military forces came to an end. Commonly called Kubasaki, a school known as "Kubasaki High School" once existed here.

This was the first property to be treated under Reversion and as a result, the legal complexities faced here were significant. It was only by the incredible efforts of former land-owners and investigators that this area finally could receive a formal legal designation as land included within the administrative bounds of the city. This was not without challenge, including treatment of various conditions taking into account issues of the bereaved. It was the longing of the former villagers to return to a sense of community as it once existed, and their indomonable spirit, that overcame these obstacles.

It is with profound appreciation to those in the present and those in the past who contributed to this effort that we dedicate this monument. There shall be no other place like Kuba.

Dedicated auspiciously January, 2010 The Village of Nakagusuku, Kuba Regional Resettlement Union
