I managed to squeeze in a 4D3N Okinawa excursion in the midst of my Taiwan trip. I've done Okinawa in January 2013 and it is always good to be back to a familiar place with some new experiences to take away. The flight time from Taipei to Okinawa is a mere 70 minutes via Eva Airways. After a quick meal service onboard, my near-empty plane landed safely at Naha Airport. I took the 1625 hours flight and it was evening by the time I reached my destination.
My hotel (Okinawa Kariyushi Lch Izumizaki Kenchomae Hotel) is a pleasant monorail ride from the airport station, located at the start of the mile-long Kokusai Dori (International Street). It is right next to the Ryubo Departmental Store that is home to a couple of nice eateries that I patronised during my stay including the Afternoon Tea Room. My single loft room is well-presented in terms of space planning and convenience. Space is a premium over here even though it suited me perfectly during my 3 nights stay.
For dinner, I headed to my favourite Ramen shop next to Oroku Station for that same familiar taste in a
rustic environment. There is also a large Aeon Shopping Mall nearby plus the usual discount pharmacy and 100 Yen shop within the same vicinity. I made my coffee and green tea bags purchases at the supermarket before heading back to Kenchomae for my well-deserved rest.
Growing up listening to the music of The Carpenters, he decided to name this blog Budokan in remembrance of their Live at Budokan Tour in Tokyo in May 1974. He finally made a trip to the Nippon Budokan in September 2017, 43 years after the Carpenters held their 18 sold-out concerts in Japan!
Hailing from the tropics, Budokan is fortunate to reside in Singapore where jetsetting around have become very affordable. His greatest passion lies in cultivating his lifetime career of travelling, blogging and tour guiding.
