These are the first sunset shots from the balcony of our new home in Nakadomari, Okinawa, Japan. The house was not yet finnished but we were able to take a look at the house we found within 24 hours of arriving via Central Housing Office and our new best friend in Okinawa, Emika, who showed it to us. We wanted a dream house on the beach with 110V electricity, all-American fixtures, 3 bedroom, 2 baths...and we found it! This was the best place we have lived in the world! Our Okinawan landlords also owned the fresh seafood restaurant below us and there was plenty of parking on the first floor. We had the most amazing sunsets for 2 years of beach living! Despite the 13 typhoons (including 3 where you could go outside and look up into the bright, sunny eye of the storm!) we were well protected by the shallowness of the bay, a large reef about a mile out from the beach and huge steel shutter dorrs to protect the windows up to 150+ mph winds.
Our views of Nakadomari Beach on the East China Sea our some of our favorite memories of Okinawa.
