Dandyism Incarnate

The Battle of Okinawa

At about 3am, I was woken by a noise and looked about the room to see what was happening. This is what I saw…

Today we used the regular bus (rather than an organised bus tour bus) to travel to various exciting destinations. At one point we had to change busses at a remote location. Below (right) is the bus terminal where we found ourselves lost and stranded without a suitable bus. Yuko had to ask for directions at the terminal, which was most primitive building I’ve seen in some time (in any country)…

We visited a memorial and museum which tells the history of The Battle of Okinawa. It was sad and disturbing to learn fate of the civilians, and particularly the school children who were involved.

Next, we went to a place where there is a cave – the kind with stalactites etc. After taking the cave tour, we were forced to walk through and past a large number of souvenir shops in the hope we would buy something. We then attended a live show where some dudes danced and beat drums. It was very exciting indeed…

As we have seen at many places in Japan, there was free alcohol provided for the purpose of ridding our filthy hands of swine flu…
