I am going to Okinawa!!!!!!!I was kind of (really) hoping to be placed with Nikolina, but she is a little further north on the island of Tokushima. It is still south of the main island, but not as far south as my island. I am trying to figure out travel between the islands, but have only found really expensive flights so far. :S
But, Okinawa is GORGEOUS!
This is where I am going to live!
Things you need to know:
-Okinawa prefecture consists of 161 islands (!!!), but only 44 are inhabited. (I hope I get placed on the main island!)
-It is located in the subtropical zone and is often compared to Hawaii (sweet! time to get in bathing suit shape. ;))
-The average temperature is about 70 degrees (wahoo!)
-It rains more than half of the days of the year (thank you, Seattle, for the preparation)
-There are typhoons (scared face)
-There is a restaurant in a tree!
Here are a bunch of places to visit in Okinawa. Book your flights now! :)
