Golden Week in Okinawa

The Golden Week holiday is celebrated at this time in May throughout Japan and this includes Okinawa. Today is the last day of the holidays and many people were out and about on the island enjoying the good weather and temperatures of 27 degrees.

We visited Yafu-batake which describes itself as an outdoor cafe. It looks out onto the Pacific Ocean from high up on the south-east coast. The cafe is housed in a number of open buildings and includes a play area for children and a small factory next door where brown sugar is produced.

Some photos from today:
