If there was any type of identification or text on or near the mural, I placed that below the photograph to give credit to the conceptual artists and their assistants as much as possible. Unfortunately, by doing it this way some taggers may be credited for work that is not theirs, but it is the best I can do with the little information I have. —Kat

From "My Travelogue Manga of Japan (Sans Drawings)," by Kat Avila, Sequential Tart, May 2006, 27 March 2006 entry:
That evening, on my way to the youth hostel, I am shocked to discover a particular mural/graffiti wall. In 1992, I interviewed Chicano muralist Victor Ochoa about his month-long trip to Yokohama to paint a mural. The project was part of the San Diego-Tijuana-Yokohama Art Exchange that celebrated the 35th anniversary of the Yokohama-San Diego sister city pact.

This very wall beneath the Sakuragi-cho Station was where Latino muralists Victor Ochoa, Richard Martinez, Roberto Salas, and Ruben Seja had joined Japanese muralists such as Rocco Satoshi, Satoru Uehara, and Morimasa Sagaya to paint. The original murals are long gone.

I will turn 20 The writing on the wall says:

"I will then turn 20 on September 24st [sic]. / If on that day, this piece of art was / still left and you could come to see it [?]. / ... and if we would still be going out together / [?] these feelings" [The rest was covered up by later graffiti.]
