Hi, I'm from Malaysia and I'm not very familiar with Japan I would like to find out about the Okinawa's Actor School. How can I get in touch with Japanese celebrities like Shimabukuro Hiroko who is also from the actor school. Chong


Well Chong, Ms, Hiroko has her own production company now. It is called SPEED. For more information try to contac the Star International School or Rising Production in Tokyo. Good Luck!

Hello, what type of freshwater fish are present here? Are there any bass and catfish here? RC


O.K. RC, black bass is in the Oshiro Dam in the south, catfish in the Higa River in Yomitan along with terepoa, carp and long armed shrimp is the Higi River near Okuma. There is also Bone Fishing. Taman (kind of Sea Bream) Gala (kind of Horse Mackerel) and Katuo (Bonieo).

Good Luck to you also!

Hello, Iím currently a full-time MLC worker on base and Iím fluent in both languages-English and Japanese. I was wondering where a person like me can start looking for a part-time job for the weekends or free time at nights to make extra money using my bilingual ability. Motivated


Motivate, you sound really talented. With your language ability you can work at the disco or some bars and clubs that are looking for night staff. Check out some areas businesses like Hotspars, Family Marts located near the bases where they may need someone bilingual. Also they should have great part-time hours since they are like 7-Elevens in the states. There are a ton of gas stations around here just choose one. Put on your walking shoes and good luck!

Hey, I want to go home for the summer. How can I budget myself? I mean Iím always shopping for collectibles here. The porcelain, the dolls, I love it all. Of course, my ticket is in the upper $900ís. Need Budget


Short and simple: stop spending, if you really plan to make it home with money to spend. You want to visit but not mooch as much. Family always loves to help you out but for the entire summer, NOT!

Hey, can you tell me where to shop. IĎm an average size American with height. I can wear the shirts and some skirts but jeans are out of the question. Some on the sleeves are a bit high on my arm too. Help! Short Changed.


Well Short Changed, believe me I hear your cry. At least you can fit the shirts. Some of us can only look and wish. They are some special shops in Naha though. Also, there are a lot of seamstresses here at low prices. Ryubo, Yamakataya, and mitsukoshi in Naha are department stores. Check those out! Good luck!

Look, I heard about the love motels here. Me and my wife want to get away but nor far away. Can you help me out with the location of these, do they have room service and pools? Recovering Romance


Hey! Hey, thatís what Iím talking about. Recovering the Romance, most of them are in the Awase area. The Melton is nice, but you ainít heard it from me. Itís a little expensive, but when you are recovering romance, money is no object. Have a Goooood time!

Excuse me, are there any secluded, romantic beaches around here. I mean ones without snakes and killer jelly fish. Hopeful


Well it must be getting close to the lubby dubby month, everyone wants to get an early start. Child let me tell you as I say, ride up the coast of 58 toward Nago. Once you pass the Torii turn off be on the look-out. There are plenty, I know, been there and done that. Have fun but be respectful, Iíd hate to have some poor surfer walk up on you guys.
