|Menu at one of the restaurants|
I don't care for the base really but we've left the base to explore the last two afternoons and evenings now and I find that I absolutely love it. The people in this country are so unbelievably polite and friendly. I find that I am really soaking up and enjoying the culture here so far. Also, the food is amazing. We've only eaten off base a few times but it is by far the best food I've had in a long long time. Luckily the menus have pictures so I can just point to what I want and shake my head since I have no idea in the world what the menu is saying. I'm hoping to not only take a class soon on learning Japanese but also Japanese cuisine. I'm eager to get into the kitchen and try some new things and hopefully sooner rather than later!!
