Excellent episode, as always. One very minor correction, the Koza, outside of the Kadena Air Force base, is not a suburb of Naha. Naha is in the south part of the island, and Koza/Kadena are about 25 kilometers north of the city.
Good catch! Honestly,I think that’s just my American-ness showing through; I have a distinct memory of seeing the distances involved and thinking, “oh so it’s basically right in the middle of the city, right?”
Suburban sprawl does things to your brain I swear.
