Near Yomitan Village’s coastline, you’ll find a theme park which offers something curious to both history buffs and arts and crafts fans. At Murasaki Mura, take a walk back to Naha’s old Chinatown and see a park dedicated to Okinawa’s history and culture.
Okinawa doesn’t have a professional baseball team of their own, even though popularity of the sport continues to be high on the island. But once a year, two teams make a way to the island to quench the thirst for ball games.
A while ago, I wrote a post about a road trip that I took with my puppies. I had a long journey coming up (I called it The Great Adventure) and wanted to do a test trip to see what taking my two gremlins on the road would be like.
An early, two-hour ride on the bullet train brought me to one of the most postcard-worthy cities in the world.
