Welcome aboard "in here" newbie! Japan must be an exotic place to sail. Tell us some more about it please.

Last time I was in Okinawa was aboard a Navy Cruiser. Navy and Marines never enjoyed a good reputation with the local population. I didn't cause the rift but am truly sorry.
Would like to hear how the marina is and how much it might cost in U. S. dollars.
Thanks for the kind greetings.... We are on the hard undergoing a refit. Should be in the drink about early May. Okinawa is subtropical with some of the best diving in the world. The sailing is not too bad either. We are in the deathly grip of our two weeks of winter... temp dipped in the low 60F range...
