'Best of Okinawa Living' is the perfect holiday gift

Date Posted: 2009-11-25

With the holiday season creeping up, the staff of Okinawa Living magazine is recommending its ‘The Best of Okinawa Living’ publication as the ideal Christmas gift for friends and family here and back home.

The 300+ page pictorial compilation produced by the award-winning staff of Okinawa Living magazine is making it easy for everyone to peruse the publication –and buy it—at weekend book signings at Camp Foster and Kadena Air Base. Managing Editor/Writer/Photographer Mike Daley, Art Director/Photographer Henry Ortega and Photographer John Burgreen will sign copies of The Best of Okinawa Living and Postcards of the Best of Okinawa Living at the Bookmark inside Kadena BX from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow, November 27th, and at the Foster PX from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 28th.

The Best of Okinawa Living is available at select AAFES locations in Okinawa for $34.95, making it the gift of choice for friends and family members back home. The APO/FPO mailing deadline for CONUS packages is December 11th.

The book is separated into chapters that illuminate specific subjects, such as Brief History of Okinawa touching on the islands’ gusuiku, or castles, and chronicles a few historical highlights. Places takes readers on a virtual tour, while Okinawan Icons explores the region, the prefecture’s people, and aspects of the island’s unique culture. Holidays, special occasions and festivals are a big part of Okinawan and Japanese culture, while Celebrations highlights Okinawan Matsuri, or seasonal festivals that includes the Naha Great Tug-of-War.

Those who register at the book signings at Kadena and Camp Foster are eligible to win a 12 x 18” photograph taken by a member of the Okinawa Living staff. Prizes are courtesy of Marine Corps Community Services Marketing. Information about The Best of Okinawa Living is available from MCCS Advertising and Public Relagtions Account Executives’ Offices, DSN 645-3193/3196, or online at www.mccsokinawa.com.
