A Day Trip to the Capital City of Naha in Okinawa, Japan


Here's something you don't see me do very often.  

Today, Doc Graff and I went to the big city, just in case it decided to rain.


Right off the International Avenue (Kokusaidori) they have a covered shopping mall.

The shops run air-conditioning and it feels great, after you've been out in the August humidity.


 We went through the meat market and took a few photos.


 Then, hit the fish market to shoot some of those colorful fish on ice.


Looking at all that food makes a person hungry so, we grabbed a quick lunch.


After eating, Doc knows we better get moving or, I'll fall asleep so, we left the city.

Naha wasn't very far behind us when I remembered I had some more business to do.


Probably, twenty years has gone by since I last stepped into this place.

They have the awesomeyummiest ice cream in the world.

I know.  That ain't a word.  But, it should be.


And, I really didn't need a scoop of strawberry cheesecake ice cream.

So, I had two.


Back up in the neck of the woods I call home, we had to break for coffee.


Richamocha Cafe was my temporary office for a few months so, I had to stop by and say "Hi".

The gals working in there know how to make a mean cup of coffee.
All my photos from the big city are developed and, I never even took my afternoon nap.

Maybe, on the way home I better stop off somewhere and have a beer !

Note: Richamocha Cafe recently was reviewed by me on TripAdvisor.

Stop on by sometime and see all the reviews done by RyukyuMike.
