Sounds like a story line for a Murakami book.

Posted in: Do you think the curfew on U.S. military personnel in Japan is a good idea? See in context

I have very mixed feelings regarding this. My experiences while stationed in Japan from 1975 through 1980 were truly enlightening. Had there been curfews, restrictions etc. I do not feel I would have grown as I did. I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to absorb some wonderful cultural habits and carry them forward to this day. This includes my morning meal of Natto and rice! I did not then nor do I now understand what drives one to act so inappropriately especially when one is a "guest" in another local. As I was and currently am, I am embarrassed by the actions of these GI's and offer my deepest apologies.

Alright I admit that I abandoned two bicycles in 1980. One was left at Akihabara Station and one was left at the Yokohama Station. I did un-lock both of them and left the keys hanging on the handle bars in hopes that someone would "borrow" them. I am sorry, had there been a disposal fee at the purchase point I would have happily paid it. They served me well during my 5 years in Yokosuka.
