Japan Journal #1 – Okinawa World

We have finally arrived! Today was our first true day and we’re in Okinawa. We spent today going to a variety of the southern end of Okinawa and some just outside of Naha (where we’re staying).

One place we went was Okinawa World – a theme park of Okinawan culture. A little touristy, but fun. They offer a nice variety of hands on things – some I knew about before going, others surprised me!

For example, I was surprised to find out you could pick your own pearl out of an oyster. So I did! I found a big one! And I paid to have them put it on a necklace right there in front of me. Too awesome!

Here’s some pics!
