I was in Okinawa in 1972 when the first KFC opened. There were long lines daily. At that time USA protected Okinawa. Until it reverted back to Japan. The people of Okinawa loved America and didn't want to revert. Nice island nation. It took over an hour late in the evening to get KFC. Loved it. My first time. We bought buckets.
