Japan Update Online

Date Posted: 1998-03-14

Have you checked out Japan Update's homepage lately? We have made a few changes, a few enhancements, and have used reader suggestions to help create a page with you in mind.

Japan Update's Internet style has changed quite a bit from the first homepage last May. Readers can now submit classifieds via email and electronic forms. Add your comments to our guest book, search our archives and read the weekly stories, including extras not included in the printed version of Japan Update.

Recently, we have also added television listings for base cable, AFN and off-base satellite listings. Our improved movie page includes a synopsis for newly released movies and links to major studios as well as monthly theater listings on all Okinawa bases. Readers can also submit comments, suggestions, concerns and messages on our new Reader's Forum message board. You can chat with other readers or your family members in the States using our Pacific Chat, a floating window that enables you to continue browsing. Apply online for employment at Japan Update or view our calendar of events to plan your weekend or see what's happening on island.

Links to various Internet sites are available at the Japan Update homepage, including the upcoming Academy Awards site, Japanese newspapers, AAFES, telecommunication sites and other sites of interest to the English speaking community. Our updated classified pages include sites to help you find an apartment, home, job or car for readers preparing to return stateside or to mainland Japan.

Japan Update Online (www.japanupdate.com or japanupdate.com) is best viewed when using a Java capable browser. Derrick Faulkner and Ann Summar, Japan Update's web administrators, welcome reader suggestions and are working to make our homepage even better!

Would you like to make Japan Update your homepage? If you use Internet Explorer, select View and then Options from the menu bar. Next, choose the Navigation tab and select Start Page. Type http://www.japanupdate.com in the Location and hit OK. With Netscape Navigator, select Edit then Preferences from the menu bar and type http://www.japanupdate.com in the Location box and hit OK.

The Internet has much to offer and Japan Update is proud to be a part of this growing community. The Update helps to inform people of the news and happenings on Okinawa, while also providing a link for many off island viewers. Here's what some readers have to say about our page:

Glad you went online. We have only been stateside for a short time and miss Okinawa and our friends deeply. At least we can keep abreast of what is happening there while we eagerly await the day we return home. Thanks and keep up the good work. -- David and Chiharu Guido

Thank you for bringing a little of Okinawa to the states. My spouse and I were stationed in Okinawa for over four yrs. We miss it greatly. Your paper continues to be one of our favorite and takes away some of the homesickness we felt after leaving a little over 6 months ago -- Beverly Harvey

It's been great watching this page evolve. Keep up the good work! -- Lopez

Lived in Okinawa for 15+ years and this is a great place, to see what is still going on, without the traffic on Hwy 58 -- Jim
