After all of our visitors, you might be thinking that we have run out of places to see and things to do in Okinawa. Well, you're mistaken! We visited two more fun sites a few weekends ago.
|Our first visit was to the Japanese Navy Underground Headquarters. Just as it sounds, it is literally where the Navy had their Headquarters... underneath the ground... in WWII.|
|There were paper cranes hanging here just like the ones I described in my post about Hiroshima.|
|Troy had to crouch the whole way through!|
|Many people are said to have committed suicide in the tunnels knowing that there was no escape and they were going to lose the war. There is literally shrapnel imbedded in the walls.|
|The epic view from atop the underground lookout.|
After the Naval Underground, we went to the Shikinaen Garden. It is the garden belonging to Shuri Castle.
|The grounds are gorgeous, with sprawling greenspace, ponds, bridges, and Okinawa-inspired buildings.|
|Inside the house where the Ryukan Kings lived.|
|A really cool tree in the middle of a pond.|
|The house from afar, really gorgeous!|
Just a regular day out in Okinawa! Tune in soon, many blogs are lined up chronicling all of our exciting adventures!
