All Things Japanese Giveaway!

Earlier this week I caught wind that Kara of Ramblings of a Marine Wife was going to host a giveaway on her blog and I asked if I could join her.  We are both stationed in Japan with our military spouses, her in Okinawa and I on the mainland.  Although we have never met in person, I still consider her a friend and we chat regularly via social media. I can't wait until we are able to meet in person {we're determined to make it happen before one of us PCS's out of here}!   We both share a deep love for the country we currently call home and we love to share as much of Japan as possible with others.


Kara, along with her friend Darlene of True Love Conquers All {who is also in Okinawa with her military spouse and whose blog I had never seen until today but am now obsessed with because of all the great photos she posts of Okinawa} and myself are each giving away a box of our favorite Japanese goodies.


Mine
 Kara

 Everything from our favorite snacks and drinks, to origami supplies and cosmetics, to dishes and chopsticks.


Entering here will get you in the drawing for all three packages.  One place to enter and 3 chances to win, can't beat that!

I'm familiar with Oki! I lived there for 2 months and totally fell in love with the island! I am hoping my husband gets orders there as our next duty station :)

I lived in Japan only 17 months, and have been away from there for 8 months....I think of Japan every day, and wonder how long I will miss being there! I think of the wonderful people that I met there, and the courtesy of strangers. I think of how the toll booth men say "domo!" when you pay them. I think of the sense of community you have on the base, and all of the free or low-cost things to do. Can you tell that I miss being there? :)

When I think of Japan, I think of their iconic flag. I love the striking red on white, but I feel like the designer certainly got off easy on its creation!

Thanks for the giveaway!

New Follower, I found you from Ramblings of a Marine Wife.
I used to live in Okinawa and I love all things Japan. We hope to get stationed back in Okinawa next fall.

I am so glad that I found your blog while searching for anything that could tell me about Camp Zama! My daughter and I have spent hours reading your blog and learning about your adventures in Japan. Hopefully, soon, we can experience all that Japan has to offer for ourselves! =)

My favorite Japanese candy (the chewy things in the middle of the front row - strawberry and pineapple were my favs!) is in there!!! Whoever wins is going to love those :) You make me miss Japan so much.

When I think of Japan, I think of Maiko - a girl I met in college who is from there. One of the sweetest girls I've ever met!

when I think of Japan, i think of FOOD (Asian food being one of my favorite cuisines) and Hello Kitty. I simply adore Hello Kitty!

Thanks for the giveaway!

I lived in Japan for a year and the thing that stays with me the most is how warm and friendly the Japanese people were to my family and me. It was one of the best years of my life!
