Japan Trip 3 – Okinawa

IMG_7362

Okinawa eh…Sorry for the lack of posts here guys/gals.  Honestly there really was not a heck of a lot that went on in Okinawa, Dani and I went to the beach on the first day and since we didn’t have the right sunblock? Apparently? We got sun burned PRETTY freaking bad.  Basically we didn’t want to take our luggage with us on a domestic flight to Naha, so we asked the Hilton that we were at if we could just leave it there for 5 days and they said OK.  Which was amazing but it meant we could not take any fluids over 100ml with us on the flight… so our sunblock stayed there.  Our lack of Japanese made us buy some sunblock that was PROBABLY just for your face? or something weird? Either way it did not work.  I keep looking for more pictures to put in here but realistically our camera was making almost all of our pictures blurry… whoops.

This was our ramen place, we ate here a lot… It was great.  There was also a sushi place nearby that was a conveyor belt sushi place and we were near this area called “American Village”.  They had some places there that had good food as well.

Okinawa is an interesting place, however it is very much not like Japan.  It feels a lot more like America then it does in Japan, we knew going in that the American influence here was strong but I did not really expect it to be so prevalent.  A lot of people might actually enjoy that sort of experience because you get to enjoy what is still Japan but almost every sign had English and some of them had English before even Japanese.

The area was undeniably beautiful though, however the lack of transit led us to basically stay in walking distance of the hotel the entire time.  I really wish I had more pictures to show everyone from Okinawa but most of them just flat out didn’t turn out.  Woah we just had a 5.6 earthquake here in Tokyo while I was writing this.  That’s the first time I’ve ever been in one, that was…. unsettling.  Well I think I will leave it at that for now, if you guys got any questions let us know!

  1. The pictures you did post are great. It really does look North Americanized! Hope the sunburns don’t dampen the remainder of the trip.
