I first arrived in Japan in July 1977 at the city of Niihama on the island of Shikoku. I spent a total of 13 years in country, during which time I visited every prefecture. I resided in Ehime, Tokyo, Okayama, Kagoshima, and Kagawa—where I lived in Yokohama, sister city to San Diego, California, my current home. Much of my travel throughout Japan was done by bicycle with my cycling buddy Bryan Harrell, a current resident of Japan and a noted food & beverage journalist. I welcome comments from other Panoramia users with an interest in Japan.

Just surfed in to this picture. It was taken from a room across the hall from my room. I worked in the dispenasry 1962-63. One of two medics. A blue ambulance was the ride. I attended a patient in the back of the ambulance. The patient did a lot better than me, all th eway down the coast to Hamilton. This picture is just the way I remember it.

This "Turnip Top" house has been fully restored and the property landscaped. It is now up for resale.

The location has been corrected by another reader. Actual location at opposite end [S/SW] of The Brac.

Best ab diving back in the '70s when it was still accessable to public. Especially just west and south of this view in the tidal surge channel we knew as The Toilet Bowl.

Garcia River, "down in the hole", as we knew it when we lived here in '61. Thanks for the memory! Hasn't changed in 50 years!

During 1961-'62, my father, Mstr Sgt Walter J. Hlebica, was stationed here, with his family, including myself. Dad worked in the orderly room, and sometimes brought me with him to work from the dependent's housing tract nearby. I remember practicing my typing on one of the orderly room machines, and catching breakfast in the mess hall. On one occasion dependent's were given a guided tour of the radar facility, including the inside of the blockhouse under the dome. Amazing! The station also featured a swimming pool - my first - and a gymnasium/rec facility where we saw movies and held Halloween costume parties. The NCO club was fun too, and a combo consisting of airmen sometimes performed there.
