    If you are a brother living on okinawa there is a lot of options for you here. There is a lodge under the Grand Lodge of Philippines, one under Grand Lodge of Japan and (I think) 3 PHA. We also have Scottish Rite. I put this out there because the island has a large turnover of military/government. If you are interested in visiting just reply in here. I can personally meet you at Phillipine/Japan Lodges and Scottish Rite (same building). The PHA I can point you on the right direction.

    I put this here because we believe there are a lot of brothers on island that are nervous about visiting and how to visit. Don't be and come on out!

Between the two of us, 1st and 3rd Friday @ 1930 (Torii #46) and 2nd and 4th Friday @ 1930 (OkiMil #68). Come see us!

    Masonry in Okinawa is flourishing. I'm PM of Teikoku #19 1996-1997. I miss my Japanese brothers. Teikoku meets Mondays, Okinawa 118 (Philippines) meets Tuesdays. Saturday mornings we have the best breakfast in town. Come on down, have a cup of coffee, and a friendly game of cribbage.

    I am sending greetings to my Brothern of Okinawa #118. I am a Lifetime member and would love to hear from the Lodge in general.
    I was Raised by WBZ Will Prestige in August of 1961 while assigned to Kadena. What a wonderful experience!
    I have attended Lodge in numerous places since that time and was fortunate enough to become a dual member in Freedom Lodge #873 of the ACPGL and was Worshipful Master in '68-"68. This was ONLY because of the wonderful assistance of Brother Stephan Czap and his coaching abilities, and the fact that the Lodge was working in the identical lectures of the State of California and the
    GLofPI. ( Since the downsizing of the military in Germany, that Lodge is now dark).
    I had plans,after my retirement, to return to Okinawa and attend on the 50th anniversary of my Raising.
    Unfortunately, my wifes medical condition deteriorated to the point that I could not leave her and she could not travel with me.
    I used to get a copy of The Cable Tow but have not heard from the Lodge now for several years.
    My e-mail address is:
    habupic@gmail.com
    and I would like to hear from either the Lodge as a group or any individual Brother.
    With much Brotherly love and affection,
    Brother Bobby G. Burns.

    Hey brother. I would really like to visit a lodge while I'm out here but it has been hard reaching any of the lodges. I'm currently in camp schwab and would love to discuss my option for attending a meeting.
