Went there, did that

I was at Naha Air Base, Okinawa, during 69-70, in the 21st Tactical Airlift Squadron. Poked around a lot of markets and visited Suicide Cliff and lots of old Japanese army caves. Returned during 76-77, after reversion to Japanese government control, and everyone was driving on the other side of the street and using yen! A hot and damp island with lots of opportunity for scuba and snorkeling. Typhoons will get your attention as well.
