6 Things To Do In Okinawa, Japan - Part 1

It's been a year, I didn't updated my blog! Maintaining a blog was never easy like Instagram (@foodlovers). Just clicked upload picture and shared it to all followers with few descriptions. My very first Japan stops will be at Okinawa, Japan.  

Have you ever heard of Okinawa before? Most of the people wondering where is it located of this island. Okinawa Prefecture is the southernmost prefecture of Japan.

1.Cape Manzamo 万座毛

Cape Manzamo is a scenic rock formation near Onna Village (Onna-Son) in the Kunigami District of Okinawa Prefecture.

Cape Manzamo comprises all of these spots! The symbol of the cape was the top left picture. Cape
Manzamo has a 20-meter high limestone cliff which looks like an elephant's nose. I was there for only 20 minutes due to time limited for joining a tour. Wished to stay longer and enjoy the view.

2. Yakiniku Station Bambohe, Kokusai Dori

Last visit on Naha and I choose this restaurant as farewell. You have to make bookings first when you arrived there and they will be giving you selected time slots to eat due to a lot customers. If you planning to eat during lunch then you better make booking during morning. Are you a meat lover? This is the place and heaven for you! It's just crossroad next to the market on Kokusai Dori and 5mins walk to Yui Station.

Price is quite reasonable and actually cheap, 1150 Yen (RM37.50) for weekday lunch, 1380 (RM45) Yen for weekend lunch and 1960 Yen (RM63.90) for dinner. For 90 minutes max and all inclusive.
Meat selection around 10 including pork, beef, steak, sausage, minced chicken, small fish.Other selection include vegetable salads, soba, fried noodle and rice, dessert, appetizer, soft drinks and ice cream of blue seal. I loved squid ink soup at here and tasted so good!

3) Busena Marine Park, Okinawa

The Busena Marine Park are located at Okinawa Kaigan Quasi-National Park. This was the highlight attractions of the tour I joined that day. You don't need to get yourself wet to see underwater sea life! How awesome right? They do have underwater observatory as well.

I'm using my IPhone 5 to take these picture inside the bus when I'm on the way by tour bus to my Glass Boat Tour @ Busena Marine Park. Thats the beauty of the Okinawa, Japan coastlines. I miss this view so much until I set as desktop wallpaper =D. I would love to do some picnic if I had another chance to return back there by just enjoy the breeze and eat some foods with your partner.
