Outside Kadena AFB, there is a street lined with funky shops, hole in the wall restaurants, and biker bars. I like driving by there on the way to my Japanese class at night and I feel oddly connected to it. Then, I figured it out-- it's just like my former haunting ground, Ocean Beach.
We recently went to a street fair one Sunday afternoon and took pictures of all kinds of things going on-- a local beauty contest, kids playing, tattoos, pink panthers, and harley aficionados.
