This series contains Okinawa culture, history, tourist, and film related materials, many of them gathered during or related to Makino's visits to Okinawa, starting in the period of the U.S. Occupation of Okinawa (1945-1972). Two binders in the collection were labeled "USECA" for USCAR or United States Civil Administration of the Ryūkyū Islands (琉球列島米国民政府) period. The USCAR materials remain divided into 2 files (See Makino's article on the period, "Occupation Rule During the USCAR Era and Media Censorship"/「米民政府（USCAR）期の占領政策とメディア統制」 in Ryukyu Reflections Nexus of Borders, program for the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival 2003).
In 1965 Makino worked on the scripts and direction of the project, Core Industry of Okinawa/Okinawa no Kikan Sangyo/沖縄の基幹産業 that was produced by USCAR. He made a series of television documentaries on local industries in Okinawa, for which the original customs and immigration documents he received from the Government of Japan are also included in this series as personal papers. The production materials include TV production documents such as scenarios, synopses, original manuscripts for narration (ナレーション原稿), production budgets, and other company documents for the local industries. These industries include: iron manufacturing, condiments, gas, shoemaking, building materials, chemicals, sugar manufacturing, apparel, flour milling, tobacco, and sake brewing.
There are also research materials for talks and roundtable discussions with local Okinawan film researcher Yamazato Masato/山里将人. Scrapbooks of newspaper article clippings and notebooks created by Makino are also included here. This series also contains Okinawa archive/library information, catalogs, guidebooks, maps, magazines (organized in alphabetical order by title), Okinawan music (15 vinyl 45rpms), Japanese government publications/newspapers such as Minami to kita/南と北 and other newspapers. There are postcards, film festival programs, 1 music reel, and scenarios, as well as items specifically related to or acquired by Makino during his visit to Okinawa for the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival materials on Okinawa (YIDFF) in October and November 2003.
Maps of Okinawa and a poster (exhibit of Gasuku/ガスク at the Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum) are stored in the East Asian Special Collections. For photo albums related to the film about Okinawan nurses during WWII, Himeyuri no tō/ひめゆりの塔, see Series XVII: Photos and Posters. Monographs related to Okinawa can be searched in the Columbia University Libraries online catalog.
