Summer Holiday This summer saw my second trip to Okinawa. It was more successful than my previous trip several years ago that was rather cold and wet. In contrast this trip was hot and sunny, although perhaps it was cooler than Tokyo, and I also got the opportunity to drive. Having a car is essential to explore Okinawa and I enjoyed discovering some new places including a hidden beach literally off the beaten track, a cafe in a traditional house serving adzuki and mochi Zenzai, an Italian restaurant with a great outdoor view, and a botanical garden growing chocolate smelling orchids! The ocean was a beautiful blue and warm, perfect for swimming and of course I saw the dolphin show, the only problem was I got sunburnt feet! 新宿校インストラクター ティムタム写真撮影:ティムタム
