Images of Okinawa

Post by Flyvapnet on Mon Sep 21, 2009 1:03 am

I lived on Okinawa in the Ryukyu Islands from October 1966 through March 1968. For some reason, I've been thinking about that island a lot these past few days.

Since I don't have a scanner anymore, I'm unable to share with you the photographs I made whilst on Okinawa. So, I went to deviantART and did an "okinawa" search. Here, below, are some photographs which reminded me of one thing or another from back in my Okinawa days. Bear in mind I always liked shisa - or "shishi dogs" as we used to call them.

Barb, Okinawa is one of most beautiful places I've ever seen. Most of the coastline is similar to what's shown in that "secret beach" photograph - although there are a few really-big beaches as well, such as at Kadena (where the U.S. Marine Corps went ashore in 1945).

Indeed, the gardens are lovely! Paths through wooded areas are always worth taking, because they invariably lead to views of the most charming and secluded houses and gardens imaginable.

Honoring one's ancestors is a big deal amongst Okinawan people, so there are very many tombs to be seen throughout the island. The beauty of Okinawa is found off the beaten path, like that "secret beach" in the photograph, yet towns and cities hold their own fascination.

Cool

My son was stationed there for awhile when he was in the Marines. He wasnt there long though as he had bad shin problems and they gave him a medical discharge.
