US brutal act during US occupation of Japan No. 2

The above photo shows one of the comfort stations established specifically for US servicemen since Japan had to obey any order US occupation forces issued. The comfort station in the photo was located at Yasuura, Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
Before further disclosing US brutal acts in Japan during US occupation of Japan, readers should be exposed to the overstrain the Government of Japan had experienced after Japan faced a major defeat on August 15, 1945. It was not during the Great East Asia War (called either the Pacific War or the World War II in the West) but only during US occupation of Japan after Japan's major defeat that the Government of Japan had to get itself involved in establishing "comfort stations" as it was ordered by General Headquarters, the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers (hereinafter referred to as "GHQ") on September 28, 1945.
The order given by GHQ specifically instructed Japan to establish "comfort stations "for officers and other servicemen stationed in the Kanto plain.
Despite Japan's efforts to protect the Japanese women from the sexual assaults, including initial allocation of national budget (JPY 50 million equivalent to USD 1 billion at the current value) to the establishment of "comfort stations", a huge number of the Japanese women had been raped by the US occupation forces until Japan recovered its sovereignty on April 28, 1952.  One must remember that the amount of JPY 50 million meant "astronomical costs" Japan had to bear just for satisfying sexual desire of US sercivemen when Japan's economy was almost completely devastated by unnecessary and relentless US carpet bombing on civilian targets throughout Japan, not to mention Hiroshima and Nagasaki massacres.
Believe it or not, "raping" had begun as soon as US occupation forces (US Marines) landed on Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan on August 30, 1945.
