    By ferry we went to Tokashiki Island today. It was just a 35 minutes boat ride from Okinawa's main Island. The beaches there were really beautiful and we were there with only a few people. One highlight was the free whale watching experience on the ferry. There were some whales swimming just next to the ferry and the captain immediately stopped the boat. It was really great and a good start in the day.

    The rest of the day we relaxed on this beautiful beach. It was a really great day!

    Mit der Fähre sind wir heute morgen nach Tokashiki Island gefahren. Die Insel ist nur ca. 35 Minuten von der Hauptinsel entfernt. Auf der Überfahrt hatten wir wirklich Glück und konnten sogar Wale sehen. Der Kapitän hat zum Glück auch sofort die Fähre gestoppt, sodass wir die Wale etwas länger beobachten könnten. Das war schonmal ein guter Start in den Tag.

    Auf der Insel wurden wir dann von ein paar traumhaften weißen Sandstränden und türkisem Wasser überrascht. Wir waren wirklich traurig als der Tag zu Ende ging.

    Okinawa

    May 27 in Japan

    Naha, Okinawa City und Aquarium. Zwei Tage Bus- und Monorailfahren. Das Aquarium mit den imposanten Walhaien und der Delfin-Show ist interessant und sehenswert. Ebenfalls empfehlenswert ist die Bird-Bar mit 6 Sitzplätzen und jede Menge schottischem Whiskey.

    Beach Day

    April 8 in Japan

    After two stormy and cold days the sun came back today. :) By bike we went to the beach and relaxed in the sun!

    Nach zwei etwas kälteren und stürmischen Tagen kam heute das schöne Wetter zurück. Wir haben uns Fahrräder gemietet und sind an den Strand gefahren. Da haben wir dann den ganzen Tag faul am Strand in der Sonne gelegen. Trotz der vielen Flugzeuge konnte man ohne Probleme eine Runde schlafen 😴.Read more

    Cape Hedo

    August 4, 2017 in Japan

    My first time I tried hitchhiking in Japan. It was super easy and many nice people took me to a lot of cool places. After the waterfall I ended up in a cake shop in a really small and empty village and after this even reached the most northern point of Okinawa: Cape Hedo :)

    Naha, Okinawa

    July 30, 2017 in Japan

    Spending one week of my summer holidays in Okinawa. It's my first time here and I booked an AirBnb in Naha. From here I'll try to explore as much as possible of the island.
    In Naha itself I went to Shuri Castle, Makeshi Market and took too many photos of cute Shisas.

    Ishigaki - Yaeyama islands in Okinawa

    October 16, 2017 in Japan

    From the most northern island of Japan (Hokkaido), we are ending our trip 3000 km further south in the most southern island group of Japan, the Yaeyama Islands. Part of Okinawa prefecture with a subtropical climate and a different atmosphere: we noticed that during our first night’s dinner where traditional live folk music was played (Shima-uta) and the waitresses started to dance and sing along.

    For the next few days, we are being hosted by Tokiko in Ishigaki (main island) and in her apartment we noticed an interesting diploma... an Italian sommelier in olive oil. She travels often to Italy to learn about the Italian cuisine and back in Japan she gives workshops... Breakfast with an Italian twist is included!

    A true honeymoon is not complete without white-sandy beaches, sun and clear blue/turquoise waters. This is exactly the scenery in which we find ourselves. First stop is Kabira Bay: not allowed to swim here because of strong currents but holy moly what a nice vistas!! A bit further up north we stop at Yonehara beach for a fresh dive and some snorkeling.

    Iriomote jima

    October 18, 2017 in Japan

    We booked a tour to discover Iriomote island and its beautiful beaches and coral reef. On time to pick up our tickets early in the morning, we are informed that the tour is cancelled due to the stormy weather (a typhoon now in the Philippines should arrive here later in the week...) By the time we have gone through all the options we have, the tour is actually confirmed and we get on the ferry for Iriomote! When we arrive after a long bus ride, it is simply tropical showers welcoming us...

    Luckily, we are also welcomed on the Coffee Boat by our skipper Jun (yay unlimited coffee!!! instant though ... 🤔). As we make our way to Funauki and Ida no hama beach, acknowledged as one of the most beautiful beaches in Japan, the rain stops. We are on for 4 hours of snorkelling in different places. We were extremely lucky despite the constantly changing weather, it is not cold, the water is actually warm and we are spoiled with the under water scenery. So many colourful fish, Jun shows us where to look and how to explore the water to find treasures such as Nemo and Dori and even a big turtle!!! It was simply one of those very special days...

    Churaumi Aquarium

    August 3, 2017 in Japan

    I booked a bus day-trip tour, which took me after a brief stop at Kouri Island to Churaumi Aquarium. I could see the big Whale-Sharks and many other cute water animals :)
