Today I went to Hacksaw Ridge. Last time I was in Okinawa my Dad made me watch the movie yet we didn’t get to go visit the actual place. So on Memorial Day, we visited two monuments, Hacksaw Ridge and Sugar Slope. Each place had such a beautiful view of Okinawa and the plant life. The amount of green you can see was just so vibrant and fulfilling. Later that day we went to Kokusai street which is a really popular shopping area and market. Last time I went there, I was extremely hot. I was in Japan during July, around the time the heat is terrible. This time was a lot better since it was night time in June. But of course, it’s always humid. I think I’ll go back there towards the end of the month so I can buy boxes of cakes and cookies to take back home for my family and friends.
Beth and I went to the beach! Finally! I’ve been wanting to go so bad since like the start of the summer. I love the beach! The beaches in Okinawa have very rough and harsh and full of broken shells and seaweed so I would recommend buying water shoes to wear in the water. Also, there are really poisonous fishes inside shells, so when you step on it their back the stinger will reach and poke you. So wear water shoes! We did snorkeling which was kind of wear at first because you had to breath through your mouth into the tube.
I had a great time at the beach, I also didn’t get sunburned! 🙂
