This week’s winner


This week’s lucky winner of Japan Update’s weekly raffle is Carmen. She won a free night in the Best Western Naha Inn hotel. The Best Western Naha Inn is located in Asato area in the central Naha City close to the Kokusai Street entertainment and shopping district.

Carmen is from Canada and has been on Okinawa three years. She says that her life here is great, saying “I just love it here!” She also says that because she likes it so much, she has no plans to move on. “That is something I haven’t event though about yet,” she says.

The three things she like most in Okinawa are sushi, weather and all the beaches. And although she is pretty content on staying put on the island, she would like to visit Kyoto in mainland sometime in the future.
