The airport in Naha was lovely. Filled with moon orchids and palms – and not much advertising, at least in the arrivals/departures areas.
But the shops do sell pineapples.
While I dislike flying- to see the clouds from above is amazing!
Bus tour was pretty good. Visited traditional Okinawa houses
Enjoyed sugar cane drink – thankfully not done via the traditional way
Visited Cape Manza … along with everyone else (trust me the place was packed)
On each occasion you did just exit through the gift shop – but also Enter through them, and have additional opportunities along the way to spend money.
I did suggest buying one of these – but it was conditional I wear it on top of my helmet, so I thought the better of it!
To top the experience off we also had Taco Rice (mince meat on top of rice with shredded lettuce, and spicy sauce). Mixed together it was great.
Every good riding tour has a rest day, today is ours. Okinawa is large… so it’s not possible to cycle where we want to visit. So it’s a rest day, and we travel by bus. I enjoy cycling but it will be good to see outside the city.
Breakfast was… as featured below. Pizza is always a good option- even if it is dessert pizza.

We also share some “instant” photos on Instagram. Some of the highlights are below.

Coffee at our ‘local’ in Tokyo.
Random train shot.
Customised digital art.
Bikes near Shibuya Stream.
It’s a good motto – especially for the Mori Digital Art Museum. After cycling awhile to Odaiba to get there – it was a fabulous experience and well worth it.
These days your local public library might have a interactive screen which projects images into the ground, which you can change. After visiting this place – I realise they are really are not worth it on a small scale.
You walk around and many of the images move from one gallery (room) to another. It’s a great place for kids… and big kids too.
We also enjoyed cold tea (infused with yuzu and matcha ice cream… from which flowers bloomed digitally each time you moved your bowl – amazing. We had such a good time!
