Okinawa is a land of long-standing tradition and steadfast ties to their past - particularly their ancestors. In this scene you can see one of the "turtle-back" tombs juxtaposed to residences. One can presume that there was a time when this tomb was situated in the "countryside." As time passes and population density increases, there is a continuing need to develope the land. Construction proceeds but the ancestral resting places are not to be disturbed.
