Share a big house with a young widow who is a music teacher and concert promoter. Your spacious room on the second floor has two large windows giving you a cross breeze and views of the mountains and ocean. This room has a big closet as well. The kitchen is large and you are welcome to use it once you've received a how to breifing.
Your Okinawan Hostess speaks only Japanese and works long hours so you'll have to plan in advance and be independent. She has some services she can provide you for a fee, with advance planning. Airport pick up is 3,000 yen. Airport Drop off is the same charge. For a fee of 10,000 yen a day or 6,000 yen a half day plus expenses (gas, meals, admission tickets, tolls etc) your hostess can drive you around the island's points of interest in her fun mobile, if her schedule allows. Please arrange this in advance. You will pay her before you leave by placing the cash in a special envelope that can be purchased at any convenience store. You can use the tan envelopes that are good for most anything, but do not use the envelopes that have a lily pad or water garden scene on the front as those are reserved for gifts to survivors of a death in the family. The white envelopes with either a bow (used for single people) and a knot (used for gifts to married people) can be used for your hostess as well.
