Just want to thank Yuli and the rest, the Toyoko hotel and location were AWESOME.
I had a nice trip. Saw Kokusai street obviously, Shuri Castle, the Chinese Gardens in Naha, and I was at Tropical Beach today.
The food was great too, delicious and healthy.
The people were nice, but there were Marines everywhere, and I could tell the local people were uneasy about them.
Sometimes I felt I wasn’t welcome here. I even went to a place that sported a “Japanese Only” sign which I thought was racist.
I read up about all the abuse caused by Marines, and felt kinda sorry for the people of this Island and its troubled past.
The locals were still very nice to me, probably because I didn’t have a shaved head.
I did miss the Taiwanese people though, which I find more welcoming to foreigners.
