Info, recommendation or suggestion on the Yoksuka area in Japan
Mikasa Park next to the base is a nice daytime break.
I adore Kamakura, which is where you can see the Great Buddha. The Fleet and Family Service Center used to provide walking maps, but I don't know if they do in this day of apps.
I also loved visiting Chinatown in Yokohama. It's Chinatown. In Japan.
For base activities and resources:
So much good food! Everywhere, really hard to go wrong. I will be severely disappointed if you eat at the Chilis on base. Just don't. I can explain what the different Japanese foods are. When in doubt, find a place with the wax dishes on display, and point to what you want. Really easy.
Great Info AntiM, we walked so many places, I lost track of the names! We did eat at Chili's, my son and his co-workers did "Chili Fridays" so it was a treat to meet them all and of course pick up the tab on behalf of Navy Moms Everywhere, lol. they were thrilled, gracious and we had a blast!
We did have to go on the street with all the bars, there is actually an Irish Bar, a country bar and a Buffalo Bar, we have a dollar bill taped to the ceiling from Buffalo, lol. The food as you mentioned was wonderful and we had to have an authentic Raman Meal, my son's favorites, that was a treat!
I have had my tickets since October 2019 to go see my son in Misawa, was so looking forward to it. My husband tells me I cannot go with this virus pandemic right now. I was optimistically thinking it was far enough out (May 10, 2020) and it will be fine. Anybody else have a trip planned to Japan for spring?
