    I wanted to show you all a few pictures of our new home. I hope to get better pictures soon.

    This is the front of our place-it is our section of a multiplex that houses 3 other families

    This one is of the distant water and mountain as we are going down the hill

    Nice and large Japanese home-wish mine is this big!

    This is a small octopus my kids caught while we were at the beach last weekend. They did let it go before we left!

    Cool octopus! Do you know what kind it was and how it was caught?

    Oh my gosh! You are so lucky! I have always wanted to go to Japan.
    Can you keep your chooks?
    What made you move there? Or are you a native?
    Your house is beautiful.

    Quote:I have no idea what kind it was! The kids thought it was a rock when they were snorkeling and when it moved, they caught it with their net. We aren't familiar with what is poisonous around here yet so they weren't allowed to touch it!

    Quote:I am not feeling very lucky yet, lol! Sadly, I had to rehome my chickens before we left and we aren't allowed to have any in military housing. We moved here because my husband is in the Marines and we got stationed here. I am trying to talk him into moving off-base after our mandatory year in base housing. My hope is we can find a house to rent that will allow chickens and a garden!

    Quote:We came from south of Kansas City, MO. We are originally from Missouri so it was nice to be close to family. Do you have family on Mainland Japan or on Okinawa? We are actually on Okinawa.

    The family that we keep in contact with just live on Honshu but I probably have really distant relatives in other places. One of my 2nd cousins has chickens and does a radio program or something like that on chickens.

    My dad was on Okinawa in 1945, my understanding is, it was not very enjoyable.
