Again I don't know the source of these photographs. I got them from a UFO group years ago. The photographs were listed as taken in Toyota City, Japan, 8-3-1975. A search (on the internet) has come up empty sofar. It's likely to have been taken in Japan because there's a billboard on the roof (in the picture). I'm also not totally convinced the photographs are genuine. The objects are pretty dark against the background and show no atmospheric hazing. It's easy to fabricate them by sticking dark obkects on glass and than taking the shot. So I guess I'm undecided.
The image above is from Ryutaro Umehara. From this website we can read the following commentary;
"Chiba, May 11, 1975: Young Ryutaro Umehara claimed that at 09:00 a.m. on May 11, 1975, he snapped 4 color pictures of a dark lens-shaped object flying in the sky as it descended in a falling-leaf fashion. The image shows a typical Adamski-inspired saucer."
Above is another picture from Hirohito Tanaka.
I also came across this contactee story from the (now defunct) MSN group Cosmic View;
At 6pm September 1, 1984, a six-year-old girl named Nao Nishimoto was playing with her friends riding bicycles in the front yard of her apartment in Takamatsu, Kagawa-ken, which is not far from Tokyo, Japan. Young Nao went to the end of the yard on her bike when she saw a large round luminous object in the sky over the rice field. She stopped at the fence and stared intently at the object, but she didn't call to her friends. The brilliant object was coming in from the right, and as it became closer and bigger, she perceived a large ring of colorful lights flying outside the object at the same time. To her surprise, the ring was just like a huge necklace with brilliant beads of many kinds of colors. As it approached the front yard its shape changed from a cross to a rectangle, then to a circle. It was a very beautiful sight and as the hazy outlines of the luminous craft became clear, the "necklace" disappeared. The object seemed to be the same kind of bell-shaped ship George Adamski photographed through a telescope December 13, 1952.
First the object came in a zigzag movement over the rice field. When it hovered a few meters high from the field for awhile, the ears of the rice plants swayed as if in a wind. Then the domed saucer moved to the left and hovered near a kindergarten school. It was only about twenty five meters distant from the girl, so she could see its cabin as large as a six or eight mat room of a Japanese house. (See drawing). According to Nao, the UFO had a large dome with four portholes and a small golden ball on the top which was very bright. Three large circular structures protruded at the bottom. The color of the hull gradually changed from orange into silver. While Nao stared at the fantastic ship, a nice-looking little boy appeared at one of the four round windows - the second one from the left - and when he looked at the girl standing at the fence, the boy smiled showing his white teeth to her great surprise. The following is from an exclusive interview with Nao at her home in Takamatsu October 25, 1984. Nao said the boy she saw had long hair, pulled back from his face and it reaches his shoulders. His hair was golden in color and his face was round. Nao said his skin color was the same as hers; he had large round eyes, small nose and ears.
In the interview Nao talked about her encounter with a very serene state of mind for her age and she had a very good memory. There is no doubt she must have seen a being from another planet. Nao said she only saw the upper half of the boy. So, it seemed that his shirt was gray and a little shiny. His shirt had a v-shaped neckline. She felt sure he was a boy because of his eyes. As Nao watched the scout craft that afternoon, it flew over the roof of the kindergarten and disappeared. Nao left the fence and hurried to the kindergarten on her bike in an attempt to see the craft once again but it was moving away. She advanced along a footpath between the rice fields. When she reached the end, where the tableland or mesa of Mt. Yashima could be seen, and the ship was hovering at a low altitude over the field. No sooner had she looked at the boy looking out the window than he smiled again and waved his left hand. At first he slowly raised his hand showing the palm, then he let it down, and again he raised the hand slowly. The sleeves of his clothes were long enough to reach the wrists. Soon after that the scout craft began to circle over the rice field in addition to rotating on its axis and flew toward the mountain. When it came to the top of; the mountain, about 300 meters above the sea, the ship flashed twice and suddenly disappeared. Nao said all this took about 15 minutes from the beginning to the end of the encounter.
She was in the first grade of an elementary school at that time, but now she is in the second grade and lives in the city of Fukuoka with her parents. She waited two days before she told her mother. At the time Nao just didn't know what to say, or just how to tell what she saw. She is a young girl, her mother said, who does not tell lies. Nao's parents believe this kind of an experience was meant to happen to help people understand better about life on other planets. The family was contacted again a few years ago by reporters and little Nao stands by her story. She says it did happen just as she said it did. And people throughout the world still continue to see and photograph the same type of craft Nao saw Sept. 1, 1984.
To be honest I don't know how to view the story above. Nao was a young kid at the time and of course couldn't be interviewed as an adult. As a young kid she also could have been influenced heavily by her parents and other folks. Nao should be 31 now so I guess it's best to ask her again.
Well, there you have it. The Japanese "Adamski-Wave".
