Yokosuka, Japan – Kanagawa Prefecture Pt.1

We’re still moving forward on our film prep but we don’t have any major announcements, yet.

In the mean time I thought I’d show you some more pics of Japan.

Oppama
Oppama. Neighbors to Yokosuka.

My sister-in-law has been house hunting over the last few months so we tagged along to check out a couple of places with her. One of the places she has been looking at is in Oppama (O-pah-mah). Oppama is about ten or fifteen minutes north of Yokosuka still in the Kanagawa Prefecture.

We visited two different sites that day. Typical Japanese homes are small indeed and I noticed (and was later told) that typically a kitchen will have a stove top but NO oven. Thinking about all the dishes my wife typically cooks. Usually, no baking is involved.

Who’d a thunk it, eh?

Bikes
Motorcycles and Bicycles are used everywhere!

Oppama is your typical sleepy Japanese neighborhood. There aren’t many foreigners around but it’s still close enough to the US Naval base in Yokosuka to minimize the staring.

If they stare, do what I do.

Smile and bow.

Most of the time they smile and bow in return.

Good times.
