Eventually the small fishing community grew into a nice little town, and even have a bit of a tourism industry keeping fresh faces coming into town. There is even a luxury hotel on the side of the island on the west side of the island.
With the town’s increasing population and need of proper education a high school was built on the land where the concentration camp use to be. The High School and Hospital were built over 50 years ago, both were the considered to be the shining example of modernization, but now both are sadly behind the times. Many of the inhabitants would like to replace them with newer better buildings, but considered historic and still in perfectly functioning conditions, the town council refuses to re-build.
With a high Japanese populace and no need to hide their heritage, the locals built a shrine in the woods on the tallest hill, for all the lost souls who died during the war. The shrine has sadly fallen to neglect over the years, despite a small hot spring resort being built not far from it, near the base of the hill, that is a popular tourist spot.
