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.

成田から那覇まではたった3時間ほどのフライトですが、着いてみるとそこはまるで異国のようです。太陽の光に輝くターコイズブルーの海、滑らかな白い砂浜のビーチ、温かい風に揺れるヤシの木。私たちが訪れた時は観光シーズンではなかったので、ビーチには人影がなく、ほとんど何も行われていませんでした。

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.

自然が好きな人には、見どころは尽きません。美しい風景と夕日、熱帯の花々、山と熱帯雨林。私たちは東南植物楽園に行きました。沖縄本島の緑の楽園です。100エーカー(約40.5ヘクタール)の植物園ではエキゾチックな亜熱帯気候の草木、果物の木、蘭、花壇がいくつかの池を取り囲んでいます。

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!

観光シーズンではなかったので、暑すぎず、来場客もまばらで、とても楽しむことができました。私たち北欧の人にとってはちょうど20度以下くらいが快適なので、冬の沖縄は最高でした!
