Dad's old pics from Japan and Korea 1951/52

Ran across a bunch of old slides in my dad's stuff from his tour in Korea and Japan. Thought I'd share them.
Dad was a dedicated amateur photographer. He once told me he quit smoking in Korea so he could trade his cigarette rations for color film. Color film was apparently quite a luxury in those days. There must be 100 BW photos for every color back then. Hope you all appreciate his pictures.
