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.
