Tropical flowers of Okinawa – 沖縄の熱帯の花

Okinawa, November11月 沖縄

The flight from Narita to Naha takes only three hours, and it feels like arriving in a totally different country; the turquoise sea glistening in the sun, beaches with smooth, white sand and palm trees swaying in the warm breeze. Our visit was during the low season, so the beaches were empty and not so many activities going on.


For a nature lover, this place has a lot to offer; beautiful landscapes and sunsets, tropical flowers, mountains and rainforests. We visited Southeast Botanical Gardens, the green paradise of Okinawa Island. The botanical garden’s 100 acres of exotic subtropical climate’s vegetation, fruit trees, orchids and flower beds encircled several ponds.


Because of the low season, our visit was very enjoyable; the weather was not too hot, and the garden was half-empty. For us Scandinavians, just below 20 degrees is the perfect temperature, so Okinawa in wintertime was a nice experience!
