oki-fucking-nawa!! part II

5:11 AM

Oki-fucking-nawa Day 2!! Up early for tarts, snorkeling, taco rice as big as your head, a bumpy jeep ride and a good old metal show.

 We woke up pretty early and headed to breakfast while we waited for our friend Daisuke to pick us up to go snorkeling.







There was a ton of traffic that day so we busied ourselves at Saion Square! And of course, our traditional pseudo-hobbit second breakfast.







After, the drive to the beach! Naha is pretty far south on the main island but our snorkeling place was a bit farther north. The drive was a little bumpy--and especially so when you're in the backseat without a seatbelt but--as Daisuke said, "It's Okinawa so you'll be fine." Apprehensive about the lack of seatbelt as I was, riding in a car is something I really miss about the states so :D




Snorkeling was amazing! I honestly haven't gone snorkeling since I was 7 years old in Sanibel Island; chubby little thing pretending to be Ariel while my little brother slept off the Dramamine next to Captain Randy on the tiny boat.

This was so much better. I would have taken photos of the actual snorkeling location but you kind of had to go down these stone steps on the side of the cliff and go right into the water from a ledge of rocks. Tons of people and needless to say I was a little afraid of letting my phone swim with Nemo.

Who we totally saw by the way! Along with a ton of other really beautiful fish. Honestly, it was really moving. I could spend forever next to the ocean.

This wasn't the actual snorkeling location but somewhere we stopped before heading back to Naha.










On the way back we stopped at King Tacos for the most authentic and gargantuan taco rice you will ever see in your life. Maybe. At least mine. I was told I wouldn't be able to finish it.

I did. :D



After that we headed to Okinawa Cyber-Box for a video comment with Tokyo-based Her Name in Blood's show. We also got to see Okinawan hardcore band Shores! You can check out both bands on Youtube here and here. :3




We have a video comment by Her Name in Blood and some instagrams of both them and Shores on our webmagazine trick/rock. so check them out if you have some time!

Day 3 coming soon!
