Only about a 20-minute ferry ride from the southeast coast of Okinawa’s main island, Kudaka Island is a popular destination for tourists. The island is often referred to as an “Island of God” where the origins of Ryukyu Kingdom (1429－1879) reside.
Some of you may be new to the island, while others may just seem to forget. But, despite signs and previous stories written by Stripes, I continue to see Y-number license plate cars pulled over for driving in Okinawa’s bus lanes.
A short drive from Murasaki Mura are two caves with historical significance: Chibichiri Gama and Shimuku Gama. These caves were used during World War II and now provide a glimpse into what happened in the early days of the Battle of Okinawa.
