Off to Zakimi-jo, then to Namihira and Nagahama to spend time with Nakandakari Kazutoshi. I met his publisher friend, Toyoda Junshi
who heads the Yomitan Village Cultural Promotion Division and History Editing Office for the Yomitan Village Board of Education.
Toyoda-san presented me with a copy of his recently released book that he has written about the former U.S. Army missile sites
that occupied many locations on the peninsula. He graciously signed the copy for me as did Nakandakari-san.
After a fifteen to twenty minute chat and a welcomed cup of ice tea, Kazutoshi drove my car (since he knew where he was going)
He also wanted me to meet his wife so we stopped at his home. He has a very nice and large property.
NOTE: I goofed at the end when I wrote that Kazutoshi's truck was at Nakijin-jo. It was at Zakimi-jo. Gomen ne!
