One of the reasons I love Okinawa is this character I met at a viewpoint high above the Pacific Ocean. He was taking a break in the shade from his duties as a caretaker on a fairly hot, sunny day. We talked and joked for awhile. Momohara-san works there 8 hours a day, 7 days a week. He is 83 years old. His cigarette lighter ran out of gas. He bummed a light from me. So, I let him keep the thing. I'm not so sure they make characters like him, anymore.
