Travel to Okinawa

Back in time to July 2007. Our family was planning the first trip to Okinawa for the children’s summer vacation. Two children are still in kindergarten. School holidays start earlier than elementary schools, so before the full-fledged summer starts and the travel fee rises, it was a calculation. My wife and I have been overseas for a long time, but we have never been to Okinawa. Children can also see whale sharks! I was looking forward to it.

Unfortunately, however, a typhoon hits Okinawa directly. I couldn’t even set foot in Okinawa because the previous flight was canceled. I heard that July is already typhoon season in Okinawa.

To Okinawa in March

The revenge was successful in March 2008. Spring break before the older child enters elementary school. Even in Okinawa, the average temperature in March is 18°C. It’s still too early to swim in the sea. However, the refreshing climate is enough to go to the Churaumi Aquarium and go sightseeing. I enjoyed my trip to Okinawa in March.

I was so excited when I stepped into Okinawa in March, and the whole family fell in love with it because it was such a wonderful place. Even if the price is relatively high, we even started discussing whether we should go to Okinawa during the summer vacation.

He loves aquariums, and even his sons, who have seen them here and there, have become big fans of Okinawa, saying, “Out of all the aquariums I’ve been to, I like Churaumi Aquarium the most! I want to go to Okinawa again!”

As someone who likes ruins and world heritage sites, I was very happy to be able to visit some of the world heritage sites in Okinawa.

That’s why I made a site to introduce Okinawa. Photographed by me and my sons. Especially my eldest son was very excited because it was his first outing since he bought a digital camera.

As the number of visits to Okinawa increases, so does the content.

However, in 2009, just before departure, the children caught the flu and canceled the trip. I was charged a painful cancellation fee. Okinawa is far away…
