A Character in Search of a Home
This old house--now a bar and restaurant--is only a block off the main shopping street, about 2 minutes from the prefectural capitol buildings, the monorail, and an upscale department store. My next novel features a character named Sam Ryder who works for a computer service outfit called Rent a Geek but whose heart belongs to Okinawan music. He needs a colorful place to hang his hat, and I'm sure this is it.
The house is an anachronism, and so is Sam. I think they belong together.
