For most of the trip back we spent visiting my friends’ friend and exploring an outer island of Okinawa called Kumejima. It was my first time to this small not so populated island.
After meeting up with the friend we went to a nice cafe with a great view overlooking the island.
The sweets at this cafe were all home made and delicious.
We then borrowed the car and set about exploring the island. Kumejima is small and in about half a day we circled the island and saw pretty much all the tourist spots.
We were lucky to go at the perfect time to see the fireflies. At night the park was completely filled with little glowing bugs. Also, there were three different species all flying about. The big one shown here, as well as little small blinky ones found only in Okinawa.
We spent one day snorkeling at the beach. Not the greatest spot, but I still saw a lot of interesting fish.
An old fashioned Okinawan soba shop. The atmosphere of the place was relaxing and the soba was good too.
Sunset at the southern point.
Before we left we ate some of the famous seafood of the island. The most famous being the big Japanese tiger prawns.
