My wife and I spent 2 years at Yokota Air Base, Japan, in Fussa-shi, Tokyo. I was on assignment at Yokota as a Government Employee and where I had an outstanding staff of Japanese Employees who made my job and time at work a real pleasure. I actually looked forward to going in to work! In fact, going to Japan was a dream come true for me since it had been my lifelong dream to go there.

We had a fantastic time there and made a lot of great friends, many of whom we still stay in contact with via e-mail and regular mail.

We loved visiting the surrounding local communities, fruit & vegetable markets, the malls, noodle stands, and the "Yakinikku" & "Screaming Sushi" restaurants.

It is our hope that we'll be able to return to Japan for one more assignment before I retire from my Federal Government career.

I'll have to get back to you on that because I haven't eaten sushi in S.A.yet. (I've been busy eating Tex-Mex food and Mexican food. )
As far as I know, Koikawa Restaurant and Tokyo Inn are the most popular sushi restaurants among many Japanese people. I'll definitely give you my opinion on sushi in S.A. later, hopefully soon.

In another thread, I posted about a Japanese style crepe shop called B and G crepes. In addition to crepes, they are expanding their menu to some other dishes as well. I had a really good sukiyaki and rice bowl there a couple of weeks ago. The owners are Japanese (I think one of them is a "famous" Japanese wrestler...!?!) and are so nice and welcoming.

I mentioned that I really miss goubou salad (burdock root) salad and the owner said she would start making it and see if it was a popular dish.

Anyway, they are great people, the crepes are good and the clientele is largely Japanese.....

Thought you guys might be interested in checking it out.

Here's the website:
