Okinawa is a part of Japan, though you can list the similarities on one hand- 1.The language… maybe one finger. They are a tropical set of islands with their own unique culture- a laid back Caribbean version of Japan. I used one of Japans many extended weekends for a visit, choosing a small island off the main one and staying a few hundred metres from white sands with little bits of coral washed up on shore.
Okinawa’s symbol is a dragon, and its everywhere- in all colours, shapes and sizes! It seemed a good photo project, the best ones all arranged in a mosaic.
