Assuming that's Pernod "Absinthe" (I can't make out the picture), I would say the jury is still out.
I've tasted it - the flavor balance isn't very good; it has a licorice tone. Wormwood certainly doesn't jump out at you as does in obvious absinthes.
I didn't drink enough of it to tell if it has a good "absinthe effect".
Where do you live on Okinawa, Kadena Air Base?

Not bogus, just not any good.

There's also another site in almost complete japanese that advertises the sale of the isuisse la bleues, you really have to dig for it through google though, don't remember the URL...don't know what it says either as I don't have japanese translation on my browser.

They also mention its thujone content if anyone is interested.
"Up to 10 milligrams of wormwood per liter are allowable under current European regulations, but the Pernod product of today has only two milligrams,"
