American Village at night…

American Village is odd – I believe it is basically what they think America is like, which just ends up in this surreal mash-up of touristy Okinawa and American things. But, it is pretty at night. And we found a little art gallery displaying wood block prints by many local artists. The work was beautiful!

Sea Glass Beach was beautiful, and much how I remembered the beach we found on Zamami Island the last time we visited. I have never seen the smooth glass pieces like we did there. That was almost magical the way it added pops of bright color to the sand! We drove through at least two sugar cane fields on the way there. There was actually a drink vending machine in one of the fields! I swear they have those everywhere in Japan!

Here are the film photos I took of that day…
