Best Things To Do In Okinawa Japan

Do you guys remember when I visited Okinawa, Japan last year? It’s such a memorable travel experience for me but I haven’t finished sharing all of my stories and photos there๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… So I’m going to start sharing them with you guys again now, I hope you don’t mind. Let’s start at Senagajima terrace, shall we?๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

Morning guys! We’re on the road along the beach, heading to the little Greece in Okinawa!

This beautiful ocean view at Senagajima Island is amazing. You can see lots of airplanes taking off and landing at Naha airport from here too!

Mama loves doing this when she asks papa to take photos for her ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Hmm let me try to pose like mama then… How do you guys think?๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

We drove all the way from Naha town to Senagajima Umikaji terrace just for this cafe but it was worth it! All the buildings here are painted in white and it creates an awesome contrast with the super blue sky and the sea (do I sound like an artist here? Mwahaha) Hammock cafe is very famous, they have both indoor and outdoor seats. Even the weather was sooo hot, but we still decided to sit outdoor to enjoy the view and our colourful drinks ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

We had been sitting outdoor for a while until it suddenly rained for no reason hahaha. I looked at other cafรฉ guests and was so surprised that none of them moved. They just sat there and they were not scared to get soaked at all ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ Well…as you know I hate being soaked, so I ask mama to move to the indoor area. It’s a lot more comfortable inside with aircond!!!๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

Senagajima is actually very close to Naha airport. So you can actually sit there and watch those planes taking off and landing very closely๐Ÿ˜„

It’s so exciting! I wanted to sit here to watch planes the whole day but mama said we need to head to our next stop now๐Ÿ˜‚

On the way to our next stop, I suddenly saw lots of school boys playing baseball, I screamed out loud with joy cos it was actually the beary first time in my beary life seeing people playing baseball hahaha๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… I think it’s such a cool sport, mama stopped by for me to take some photos๐Ÿ˜„

Finally arrived at Okinawa American Village๐Ÿ˜„ I was so curious about this place but mama said this American themed village is the perfect place to visit if youโ€™re craving for American styled shops, restaurants, cafes and entertainment that blends well with the Okinawa island culture. The village’s landmark is the giant Ferris wheel which you can pay ยฅโ€‹500 for a ride and enjoy beautiful views of the village and Chatan.

The famous Orion beer!!!! I asked mama if I can have a sip๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… mama said yes then she ordered Coke,nuggets and chips for me instead arrrrrgh!!!!!If we were to talk about liquor that you should definitely taste in Okinawa, then itโ€™s Orion Beer! Once you pour it down your throat, you will undoubtedly be captivated by its light and creamy feeling. (this is what it’s said in the website, I didn’t try mwahaha)

Mamaaaaa, I’m not going home with you! I have my own car now and it’s cooler than yours hee hee๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† Oh but before you leave, please come teach me how to start the engine first, mama!๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿป

It turned out that the cool vintage car wasn’t working๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… Luckily mama didn’t leave me here and it was getting dark already arrrrgh๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Time to go back to Naha!!! Mamaaaaa, what we gonna have for dinner tonight?

Shabu Shabu for dinner!!! This place is awesome, I highly recommend it๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– The restaurant is very decent, clean and relaxing! I got to sit on the Japanese style seat too!!! The service was 5 star! There’s an uncle who was super polite, attentive and always made sure everything was alright๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜ The soup tasted very good, it was served with Okinawa kurobuta and Okinawa soba!!

My last day in Okinawa๐Ÿ˜ข I fall in love with the city๐Ÿ’– My hotel is located just 3 mins away from Naminoue beach, I can literally walk here every morning! It’s supeeeer awesome๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Mamaaaaaa, can I go swim in there???? Pleaseeeeeee๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I forgot to bring my bikini but I can go naked maybe?๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

So mama didn’t let me go swim nakedly ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… but she asked to climb to the top of this hill behind me instead. Mama said there’s a very beautiful temple up there. Let’s go see then ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m soooo lazy to climb and walk huh๐Ÿ˜‚

At the entrance of Naminoue Shrine ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† Mamaaaaaa, don’t tell me I have to climb up there myself? Arrrrrgh๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Mama! This is my last warning! I am not gonna walk unless you come carry me to go up there! ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค

Arrrrrrgh where’s mama now????? Mamaaaaa… ok I walk….wait for meeeeee!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Here I am at Naminoue Shrine ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ The shrine is Okinawa’s spiritual place which has been worshiped by locals for ages. Naminoue shrine is sitting at the top of a bluff above Naminoue beach, it’s the main Shinto shrine which has been a holy spot for a long time. The buildings were destroyed during the war in 1945, but were rebuilt in 32 years which ended in 1993. It is a great place to stop by if you are planning to visit Naminoue beach. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Gotta clean my fur before entering the shrine๐Ÿ˜… No worries, I’m not going to shower here haha ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ This is chลzuya or temizuya (ๆ‰‹ๆฐด่ˆŽ) at the Naminoue shrine in Naha, Okinawa. It is a Shinto water ablution pavilion for a ceremonial purification rite known as temizu. Water-filled basins, called chลzubachi, are used by worshipers for washing their left hands, right hands, mouth and finally the handle of the water ladle to purify themselves before approaching the main Shinto shrine.

Now let’s write down my wishes and make a fish! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† Can you guys guess what my wishes are?

Walking around the shrine…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… Mamaaaaa do not tell me you wanna walk around until dawn??? Arrrrgh I am SO HUNGRY already!!!! Let’s go eat!๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค

Yay!!! I get to have lunch at the famous 88 Steak house, Kokusai street๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ Their portion is big but I’m sure I can finish everything hee hee๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š We will be doing some shopping before heading to the airport. So sad we have to leave this island, I have had so much fun in Okinawa and I will be back again for sure!!!

Let me show you what I’ve brought back from Okinawa๐Ÿ˜Š

Benimo sweet potato tart is the most famous souvenir from Okinawa, it tastes soooo good, not too sweet, I really really love it๐Ÿ˜Š

I also got two Okinawa t-shirts for papa and mama, so sad they don’t have my size๐Ÿ˜…

Lastly, a pair of Shisha to guard my house ๐Ÿ˜Š
