Our trans-Pacific cruise made a one-day stop in Okinawa. Well, technically, Okinawa is really the Ryukyu chain of islands from the southern main part of Japan stretching toward Taiwan. Although it’s a prefecture of Japan, it has history of independent trading with both China and Japan. Okinawa suffered terribly in World War II. Believe it or not, Deena and I had lunch with a fellow who said the cruise was his second trip to Okinawa. His first was for WWII!
We stopped in the port of Naha and wandered aimlessly around town.
