I'm moving to Japan with my husband in February sometime and we're not sure which of the housing places we want to try for. I know there's Negishi, which is the farthest from Yokosuka but has the most apartments that we qualify for which I believe is just a two bedroom since we don't have kids. I don't believe Ikego has any two bedroom or smaller houses/apts. Yokosuka I believe, has only one building with two bedrooms. I've also heard about Sakura Residence, which sounds appealing to me but my husband thinks there too small. I've been trying to find some internal pics, more than just floor plans, but I haven't had any luck. Does anyone know where I can find some? Or has anyone been to any of these and can describe them for me? Also my husband and I are trying to learn the language ( this would be my third attempt but I'm doing much better than I was in intermediate school and college) does anyone know how long it takes to be decent at the language? My goal is to be fluent but I know that will take a while. Is there anything else I should know? I've been doing some research but am still quite confused about the whole thing. I'm very excited though! No more having to hunt down a speciatly shop to find some azuki mochi . I live in Washington now but am originally from Hawaii so I'm looking forward to finally getting the food I'm used too though I'm sure it will be a bit different. Hey do they have shave ice and coconut syrup there? Or are those mainly Hawaii things? Thank you for all the help (I hope comes )

I used to live in Negishi Hts back in the early 70's. My dad was stationed at the Naval Hospital on base at Yokosuka. The drive was a 45 to 90 minute commute (16 miles, approx) along Rt 16. The train was the best way to travel. You get to experience the local culture and learn to navigate the railways. If you can learn to get around on public transportation in Japan then you will learn that you can master just about anything, Tokyo is a lot bigger than New York...If I had to move back to Japan and I had to work on base at Yokosuka, I would definitely live in Negishi Hts. There is so much more to do there now, please the local landmarks are a history buffs dream.
