Okinawa

I wish I had some more time to spend cruising around Rinku Town.  Anyway, I was up super early to catch the Airport bus at 5:50am.

I just spent the last couple days in Okinawa.  Although, I guess one of the days was at Tokashiki island.   When I arrived and grabbed my luggage..took this picture of Okinawa’s world famous sweet potatoes.   They even sell them cooked from this truck.

Close family friends picked me up at airport and we went to a Dharuma temple to check it out.

 

Then we went to うふや (ufuya) , a 100 year old house that was turned into a restaurant.  The food was good and it was a nice place that is highly recommended to folks visiting Okinawa.

After lunch, we drop around the island and went to check out a waterfall.  There were these older ladies sitting and bundling incense as part of an offering to the gods.  They mentioned the area was a sacred place but now most people come here to take pictures of the waterfall.  Unaware it is a sacred place.  They gave me a bundle of insense.  They said  I’m traveling for me to take it for protection.

Then we went to this beach with the rock formations.  I forgot the name of it.  I”ll have to ask lol.

Picked up a lot of candy for my nephews and nieces back home and called it a night.
