The Bomb Shelters on Ie Shima were a necessary part of life.  You needed to eat, you needed to sleep and sometimes you needed to sit in a bomb shelter.  WW2 was fierce and the island of Ie Shima was real close to Japan which made it a prime and easy target for the remaining Japanese fighter aircraft and bombers.  On this page you can also see the P-47 maintenance setup for removing engines and a B-29 which probably made an emergency landing.  The plane here is a P-47 Thunderbolt, "Droopy Drawers."    Press at the right arrow below the picture to go to the next page in this exhibit.
