So when we first heard we were coming to Japan we were anxious to live off base, with the locals, nestled in the community...then we heard it wasn't an option. We had to live on base. I didn't think I would like it. Like most other things I was wrong, living on base has been a huge blessing and it's quite nice.
This is base housing, there are two housing areas, one on main base and about ten minutes north is where we live on north base. It's very nice and quiet.
This is the base "beach", not bad right? The real beach is about 15 minutes away but this one is great and they have kayaks and boats and jet skis and it only a two minute drive from our house.
This is the maximum speed here on base, but it's not miles per hour, no it's kilometers, so I think it's about 45 miles per hour. Pretty slow, and this is only a small stretch for the most part it's 30-40 kilometers on base.
These stone shrines are all over the base.
