New Life for Former Military Houses in Okinawa

I found this story about former U.S. military housing on Okinawa in Japan Today and thought I'd post it here. Apparently the old concrete structures are being rented by people from mainland Japan; they're interested in the housing because it looks different from anything else they've seen on the mainland. Interesting.

I'd always thought that native Okinawans inhabited the old U.S. military housing because some of the apartment buildings have the same style of construction as the on-post housing I lived in as a child when my dad was in the Army.
