... in Japan it is nearly unknown. Because of a typhoon, we couldn't go for a snorkel tour, but when you will visit this area, try to do it. Cost for a tour is from 5.000 - 12.000 ¥.

After the cruise, we took a ferry to Ishigaki Island and then to Taketomi Island, where we stayed for the night.
I have enjoyed travelling with my mum many times, but she is getting older and it is getting hard for her to travel. Maybe this travel could be the last trip. Anyway, our destination this time was Okinawan islands, which are very far from my hometown and Ishigaki island of Okinawa is actually about 400 km away from Naha, the capital city of Okinawa. As soon as we arrived at the airport, I picked up many brochures of tourist attractions, because ...
