There is something about Japan that amazes me every time I come across it in the travel magazines or online. But what strikes me most is out of all prefectures; well as much as Tokyo is a must, Okinawa just tops my list. Have you guys seen Okinawa’s beaches?
See, I bet you wanna jump on the next flight out to Okinawa! I’m seconds ahead of you. Okinawa is located in the southern region of Japan, no wonder it is called ‘place of eternal summer’. For people like me who lovesthe ocean, Okinawa is the perfect destination as it’s filled with world class coral reef! Good for diehard fans of diving and perfect for backpackers like me who likes snorkeling. Now where’s my Japanese Nemo?
You guys know how crazy I am about temples and ancient places right? I heard that a long long time ago there was an ancient kingdom in Okinawa call “Ryukyu” and even today, the remnants of this ancient civilization still exists! What’s more, many exotic traditional customs are still practiced by the current generation. Wouldn’t it be nice to be a part of this unique Okinawan culture?
I just found out while researching for Okinawa that they have created a special Facebook page for us Malaysians! It is loaded with information and pictures that will surely tantalize your eyes. Not only that, they also have a contest running where you could win some of Okinawa’s awesome souvenirs.
It’s so easy to win that I think all of you should join! Firstly, you have to LIKE Visit Be Okinawa Facebook page ( https://beokinawa.net/my ), then choose three of your favourite Okinawa photos, A winning photo will be announced selected at the end of the contest. If the photo that you chose match the selected pic, then you stand a chance to WIN! Easy isn’t it?
This contest runs from February 10 to March 10 2014. And you will be running, alongside me, to win -
1st prize for 5 persons, “Ryukyu Glass”
2nd prize for 50 persons, “Star Sand”
Isn’t it exciting, who knows in the future, there may be more contests from Okinawa and maybe we will be flown to the amazing island itself? Keep your eyes glued on their Facebook page!
