Once more on my adventure brave and new. (R. Browning)
Amy is about to embark on her new adventure of moving to Okinawa. She’s doing her research and spending tons of time online looking stuff up (that’s how she found us!). But she has a question:
In one of my many web surf marathons I found a site that said once we come to Okinawa we are not allowed to leave Japan for 6 months. I only found it on the one site and it just doesn’t seem like it can be true. Do you know anything about this regulation? I’m hoping it’s false because my best friend gets married in December and I really need to be in Florida.
I vaguely remember that when we arrived (how is it that you forget so fast??) my husband had to take our passports to work to get some sort of stamp so that we could stay? Or was it so we could go? Man, hoping some of the rest of you remember this info better than I. Help Amy, please!
