"music is good's " living in Japan

I'll first start by saying I came to Okinawa via the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War. I was stationed at Kadena Air Base and then after some time was transferred to Yokota Air Base outside of Tachikawa, at least I always thought so. Didn't have a map at that time.
When getting my assignment to go over seas, I knew it would be an adventure, well, not really if I were to be going to South Vietnam. I did get to Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan and of course, Okinawa.
I'd like to make this journal for those that read it, see Japan in a way where there aren't that many bright lights, but a country where one lives what many Japanese consider the "countryside" of Japan. Which is Yamaguchi Prefecture.
I returned to Japan to my wife's hometown with our daughter in March of 1993 and have been here since. I had no idea what it would be like living in Japan other then when I left the States, I said, just go and find out.
I'll post often as I'll have some pictures and daily events that I've experience that I'll also talk about. I'll say if you come to Japan, make sure you get your driver license as soon as possible, other then that, I doubt you'll heard anymore advice from me. Where I live, I got to admit, I never had to worry about my safety unless I was on my scooter or out cycling.

So for those interested, please feel free to visit my journal, and any comments are welcome.

Thank you

Most people think of the "cherry blossom" time that comes with the bbq's. So make friends here and enjoy.

So now I'll let my life in Japan start with this journal. Hope you enjoy the pictures and stories.
