Forget 24/7, Where’s 7-Eleven

Although the Ryukyu Islands were returned to Japan in 1972, there are still some basics that provide a contrast in the two main islands. When I was in the Fussa area outside Tokyo in 1981, I saw my first Japanese 7-Eleven. Having lived only in the Okinawan Prefecture of Japan, I was very surprised to see the store. Here it is almost 25 years later and below is a listing of the addresses of the current 7-Elevens we have on island (that I know of):

You got it, a big fat zero!!! There has been an influx of large mainland Japanese companies on island over the past 5 to 10 years, but not one 7-Eleven! So it came quite the surprise to see this article in the news today.
