To finish up our two months in Japan, we left behind the castle in Himeji and boarded a train for the Okayama and than a boat to the island of Naoshima. We enjoyed the open-air art installations around the island and the quietness. Once done, we head to Hiroshima aboard a bullet train. Hiroshima obviously has a lot of history attached to it, and it was difficult to take in all in sometimes. Next up, we boarded a flight down to the south Islands for some warm weather. We flew into Naha on the island of Okinawa, and headed straight to the harbour to catch a boat to the much smaller island of Zamami(pictured above). We loved the peacefulness of Zamami and the scenery was beyond beautiful. Who knew such tropical landscape was in Japan. Zamami is also rich in war history as it was a pivotal battleground in the battle of Okinawa. Speaking of Okinawa, we next boarded a boat back over and headed towards the north to an area called Moon Beach. We relaxed for a bit as our Japan time wound down. No more lows, but the highs continued to build. The food, the thoughtfulness, the ease of navigation were all highlights of our time in Japan. Just a delightful country to visit.
