U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Adam Alvarez Martinez, F-15C Eagle support journeyman assigned to the 44th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, signs out an Airframe Mounted Accessories Drive seal removal kit June 27, 2019, on Kadena Air Base, Japan.
Pilot error was to blame for the F-15C Eagle crash into the ocean south of Okinawa in June that left an Air Force pilot in serious condition and led to a temporary pause in training, according to reports released this week by the U.S. military and Japanese government.
If you live on Okinawa, you might have heard about Goya, a local cucumber-like vegetable also known as bitter melon. As the name suggests, this green, bumpy veggie has a bitter taste but is a favorite in the summer season.
Japan is the land of the vending machines, but these are not exclusive to selling soda, coffee, hot tea or even canned soup broths. In Chatan Town, you’ll find what may seem like just another vending machine, but these orange machines don’t sell drinks.
