Seeking a bit of adventure while visiting or living in Okinawa!
Spring break is upon us.

Finally, there's a reprieve from the weekly madness of waking up kids, fighting over outfits, shoving homework in the bag, and rushing to the bus. Whew.

But by Tuesday you'll most likely be over the door banging from the rushing in and out, the constant requests for snacks, sibling fighting, and general chaos that comes with kids.

Sorry, we can't relieve you of your kids, but we can give you ideas for places to go that won't break the bank and will get you out of the house.

Sometimes a change of scenery is all we need to make a situation more tolerable ;)

Friendly Reminders

  • Respect the cultural and religious differences of the island. Don't leave your "mark" or destroy sites.
  • Have fun!
