Check out the beauty of Okinawa! Okinawa is the most southern prefecture of Japan and is known to be the most Americanized part of the country because of all the military bases down there. We took a trip to Nago, Okinawa’s north to visit friends. Check out the beautiful sky and the awesome Milk tea I picked up at the store.

I was swimming around Easter in Japan and walked right into one of these. At first I didn’t know this was a fire choral. I thought a jelly fish had stung me.

I felt something hard, like a plant touching me. The burn was pretty painful for a few hours.
