Okinawa Essentials

Your Reviews & Thoughts!

Write a review: 

Do you have a favorite restaurant you would love to share?  A favorite beach?  Any thoughts on PCSing that you wish you had known before coming here? 

Your reviews help others choose where they will eat, relax, and explore  - making their move to Japan smoother and helping them to enjoy their time even more on this wonderful island.





As a military spouse on our second overseas move, and 5th move overall, I know how frustrating it is to find good information about moving to a brand new location in a foreign land - from the challenges of the actual PCS, to finding new restaurants to eat, places to relax, a good church to attend, schools for the kiddos - in short, starting life all over again.
