Travel to Japan for an Okinawa Holiday! (Naha & Southern Okinawa)

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

After covering Northern and Central Okinawa earlier in the week, here is a post to wrap-up the lower little part of it~

Okinawa is a good place to make your Japan-traveling dreams come true, because there are historical and traditional sections of it in addition to fun, modern shopping locations as well as plenty of BEACH!!  It’s also just an all-around beautiful place, as the photos here show.

Naha

Shuri Castle

In the days of the Ryukyu Kingdom, this castle was a political and cultural center.
Now, you can visit what remains of it to learn its story.

The Stone-Paved Road of Kinjo-cho

Beginning from Shuri Castle mentioned above, this walkway paved with Ryukyu limestone
will lead you through beautiful scenery to enjoy if you decide to take a stroll along it. c:

Kokusai Dori

This shopping district is right near the Naha airport, so you can enjoy it right when you arrive
or up until you’re about to leave~  It boasts modern shopping and name brands
in addition to traditional crafts.

Southern Okinawa (Itoman/Tomigusuku/Nanjo)

Valley of Gangala

This is a subtropical forest vibrant with nature and life!

Gyokusendo Caves

There is an Okinawa World Theme Park, and the entrance to these caves is located inside.
Ryukyu limestone is found in abundance here, in these mysterious caves that have
existed for more than 300,000 years.

Travel to Japan for an Okinawa Holiday! (Northern & Central Okinawa)

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Okinawa is a series of islands to the south-west of Japan’s “main island.”  In addition to its historical significance, it is also famous for its tropical climate, with tons of beaches and even coral reefs to visit!

If you have dreams of traveling to Japan, Okinawa is a good introductory destination, since not only would you enjoy yourself on the beaches and shopping, but you can also pay tribute to and appreciate its significance in history.

This first post covers a few things to do each in the northern and central regions of Okinawa!

Northern Okinawa (Onna/Nago/Motobu/Nakijin)

Okinawa Chunauri Aquarium

This is inside the Ocean Expo Park mentioned a bit below. c:
I love visiting aquariums, the water and beautiful creatures swimming around it
just feels so peaceful and relaxing!

Kouri Bridge

This bridge is 1,960m long, and offers views of the ocean on both sides
while you are on your way to or from Kouri Island!

Ocean Expo Park

This is a sightseeing area with multiple attractions including beaches
and the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium!

Central Okinawa (Ginowan/Chatan/Okinawa City/Uruma/Yomitan)

Cape Manza

These beautiful cliffs are actually coral!  The view is of the East China Sea.
Many people travel here to see it during sunrise or sunset.

Bios on the Hill

This botanical park is pretty big, and allows visitors to experience
the ecosystem of Okinawa throughout each season.
You can enjoy walking on footpaths or ride a boat or water buffalo-drawn cart!

Araha Beach

This beach is 600m long and is located in Araha Park –
a good place to find a hotel so that you’re close by!

Cute & Convenient Everyday Items for Your Kawaii Home & Lifestyle

Monday, June 26th, 2017

My personal belief is that, whenever you are going to buy something convenient and functional,
if you are able to purchase that thing in a color or style that makes you happy,
you should absolutely do so!!  Especially when the thing in question is perfectly affordable!

These everyday, convenient items are all EXTREMELY cute,
AND they are not expensive at all!

Home Simply – Animal Cable / Earphone Organizer

Ohhhhh sooo cuuuuuuute!!
Not only will these hold headphone cables,
but they can wrap around other things as well –
several things are demonstrated in the photos when you click through!

I love that the nose of the animal is the button that you push through
to secure it… too cute… im gonna cry. ;A;

Litfly – Ear Head Band

These soft headbands hold your hair back while you are washing your face,
applying makeup, or anything else you might want to keep your hair
out of your face for~
And they come in these two soft, pretty colors and have cute kitty ears on them!!!

Litfly – Silicone Makeup Sponge (Tear Drop) (Pink)

These silicone makeup blenders are the current beauty trend,
and seemingly the successor of beauty blenders – since they are
silicone rather than spongy, your makeup doesn’t get absorbed into
the sponge, so more product gets on your face where you need it!
I imagine it’s also much easier to clean. c:

Hera’s Place – Cable Protector

O!M!G! these cable protectors look like sweet little pastel popsicles!!
Actually, those milky colors make them look like creamsicles……. :9
Anyway, these come in two parts – both the popsicle and its stick
work together to protect both ends of your cables!

Cute Essentials – Cherry Blossom Print Folding Umbrella

This is soooooo prettyyyyyyy!! *o*
I think that see-through umbrellas are very beautiful to begin with,
and having a shower of pretty pink petals above you as you walk through the rain…?
OMG!  That sounds so elegant and dreamy~

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

I’m always on the lookout for pretty things
to bring into the home – especially soft and delicate
floral patterns!

There is something delightfully princessy about these
sweet and soft watercolor-like flowers
on these coffee, tea, and other kitchen supplies
by Ceramic Ai~

Hana Tsumi Mino Ware Chazuke Bowl Set

I’m glad there is a description for this on the product page –
chazuke is a Japanese dish that involves pouring tea
over rice, but this bowl set could be used for anything
and also comes with a pretty pink napkin!

Hana Zukushi Mino Ware Glass Dessert Bowl Set

When I see this precious dessert bowl set,
I am already fantasizing about eating ice cream
from those beautiful bowls!

Hana Kobo Coffee Dripper

Okay, I’m not familiar enough with coffee drinking
to know the purpose of this coffee dripper. nn;
I seriously just picked it to show off because
I love the soft purple watercolor flowers!
If you’re a coffee drinker, I’m sure you can appreciate it
much more than I can. 😀

Hanawa Mino Ware Earthenware Teapot Set

I cannot believe the price available for this
for a full set of traditional-style teapot and two
bowl-style teacups!!! (/*o*\)

Hana Gasane Mino Ware Small Plate Gift Set

Of course, finishing off your tea set with
several matching plates makes for the most striking statement
when you are entertaining guests!!
…Or just enjoying tea for yourself at home. nn
