The views are gorgeous. Seriously, they can’t be beat.
The military family. I understand how everyone says the military becomes your family, but I truly felt that way here. When my husband was deployed, my friends and neighbors were my family. Yeah, there’s a heck of a lot of woman/wife drama here, but that’s going to be everywhere. I know it won’t be the same once we move and I’ll miss that.
Reward Cards. Every business has some sort of reward or punch card. I have tons in my purse – nail salons, clothing stores, dog groomers, restaurants, kids play places – you name it, they have a reward card.
The people are wonderful. Okinawans are nice people, just all around nice people. They will go out of their way to help you, even when you can’t speak to each other.
The customer service is excellent. Sure there are times when it’s lacking, but overall, it’s way better than it is in the states.
The food. Everyone I’ve asked said they will miss the food more than anything. I have to agree with that. Weird as it sounds, I’ve had some of the best pizza here. That’s in addition to all the Japanese food, sushi, and other varieties.
Have you seen my pedicure pictures? Do I really need to explain that? The pedicures here take about an hour and half. They do all the normal feet scrubbing stuff, a super long and super awesome leg massage, then the nail art.
The cuteness. Japan is known for all the cutesy crap. I’m not big on that stuff, but you have to admit it is kinda fun. Like Purikura. They even want to make us cuter!
There are tons of other reasons too, but you don’t want to be reading this all day!
