I just moved to Misawa about two or 3 weeks ago and I love it here! It is a small farming community but there are places around to shop. I still haven’t been off the Air Base too much but from what I have seen, I love so far. I can’t wait to explore more of Japan!over 2 years ago

my father was stationed here years ago and i practically grew up there… from when i was one until i was about five or six. that’s when we moved to california (so i guess i left around 1991/1992?)
i remember my time there pretty well (i once drew our house inside and out for an assignment in one of my classes and my mom was shocked, because everything was so accurate in terms of placement, haha)…
i really miss my time there! we lived on base, but i always went on errands with my mom off base. :3 maybe i’ll go visit again, because for sure i’m going to japan again. ^^over 5 years ago
I lived here back in 1975-1977 at the Air Force Base. We lived offbase for a year and then onbase. It was the best time of my life. It’s so far removed from the city life, so you get a true feel for local Japan.
It seemed like there was a festival of some sort every month, so it made for great fun on the weekends to go downtown, eat, and have fun watching the parade.
It was usually cold with lots of snow. The base had it’s own small ski slope that the high school kids used; we even had our own beach too. Our family used to drive out to the Pacific side of the island early in the morning and search for glass floats that slip off from the fising nets.over 5 years ago
