The Urasoe Park has arguably the longest slide in Okinawa. Every kid who visited the place will definitely fall in love with the amazing slide that takes about over a minute to complete.
The speed was limited by rollers and we wished we could go faster. But nevermind, the fun part could not be taken away.
It does look fun and thrilling. Something that we can’t find back at home but a word of warning that too long a slide could hurt the buttocks.
Just a short drive up from Urasoe Park is another playground where kids can indulge in flying foxes and long slide, again!
Fun, fun and endless fun…

Blue Seal Ice Park
Blue Seal Ice Cream originates in Okinawa and has now branches all over Japan. Beside selling yummy delicious ice cream and Japanese style crepes, we discovered that it allows visitors to join in ice cream making workshop.
The blue seal ice park is where you can experience making your own original popsicle. It’s a popular tourist destination close to Naha-city.
Beside ice cream making, they also provide soft serve for us.

Orion Happy Park
We don’t fancy beer but it is still a good experience to watch how delicious Orion beer is made at Orion Happy Park.
The tour is free and starts every 20 minutes. We get the chance to enter the beer production site to see the manufacturing process.
Beer tasting is part of the take away.

Kokusaidori Yataimura, otherwise known as Kokusai Street Food Village, is the must-go-to place to taste Okinawa’s authentic dishes.
At our final evening in Naha, we walked down the main shopping street Kokusaidori. The Yatai Mura has a nice atmosphere at night with all the lights and lanterns.
Several food outlets offering not too pricy food selections. Array of kanji characters scrawled across chalkboard signs and restaurant menus.
Kokusai Street paved the way for the revitalization of Naha as a cosmopolitan blend of different cultures and backgrounds.
Any reasons to love Okinawa? We found plenty of them.
