沖縄に居る私だよ Me in Okinawa 

January 18 [Tue], 2005, 14:53
いよいよ沖縄に来るもう3週間になりました。結構寒いですが、肌の調子体の調子ちょっとおかしくなったかなあ。 でも色々なこと経験できるし、綺麗海にも癒しできるから、それはよかった。どっか違う所がある?

This is me since coming to Okinawa for 3weeks. It is quite windy here and my skin and body could not get used to it at first. However upon coming here I experienced many new things and I could also marvel upon the beauty of the beach, so I am quite happy with that. Do i look any different?

Yapeusというソフトはインタネットから発見したから、沖縄の生活写真日記チャレンジしてみようかなあ!と思ってた。この一枚は沖縄に来たから最初撮った写真です。家の近くである宇堅ビーチで!

I discovered a free photo diary software on the Net, so I decided to make a Okinawa lifestyle photo diary. This is the first photo I took upon coming to Okinawa, venue is Uken Beach near our house!

今日は涼子ちゃんと一緒に北谷のビーチに行きました。ビーチが見えるの2階であるカフェでのんびりしました。北谷ビーチはすごくいい雰囲気だった、バスケットやっている人も多いだし、散歩する家族も多いよ。また遊びに来てほしい!

Today I went to Chatan's Araha Beach with Ryoko, We spent some time at a 2storey cafe overlooking the beach. Chatan beach has a very nice atmosphere as there are many people playing basketball and families taking walks along the shore. I want to go there again some time!

こちらは沖縄の一番古いビーチホテルのムーンビーチです!とてもいい天気だから景色も最高だよ。波の音聞くと心静かになりました。ムーンビーチに就職することなる可能性があるんですけど今検討中です!

This is the veteran resort hotel of Okinawa, Moon Beach. It was very fine weather and the view was excellent. The sound of the waves calms one's heart. I maybe able to get a job in Moon Beach but they are still talking over it, so lets wait and see...

沖縄の桜祭り Okinawa's Sakura Festival 

January 22 [Sat], 2005, 14:24
友達が本部(遠い)の八重岳という所の沖縄桜祭り連れて行ってくれた。すごい坂上ったよ。車で。桜まだあまり咲いてなかったけど、一著ちょっとありますね。沖縄の桜の方が小さい、色もブライト!かわいいね!

My friend brought me to Yaedake (very far) in the northern part of Okinawa to see the Okinawa Sakura Festival. It was a super steep hill and we climbed it by car. There were not much sakura but we saw some in the end. The sakuras here are smaller in size and color is brighter! isn't it cute!

宮城島に!To Miyagi Island! 

January 23 [Sun], 2005, 14:02
今日は隼人の休みで二人ドライブに行きました。車で行ける離島に行きました、具志川と繋がる3つの小さい島がありまして、平安座(へんざ)島、宮城島 と伊計島。 橋渡ると行けるよ!景色とてもきれいだったです、畑で頑張っている人がよく見える。自然もたくさんあるよ。

Today was Hayato's restday so we took a drive to one of the small offshore islands. From Gushikawa there are a stretch of 3 small islands that are accessible by car. These are Heiza-jima, Miyagi-jima and Ikejima. You can get there by crossing a wide bridge that links Gushikawa and the islands. There is a bounty of nature as well as folks working hard in the sugarcane fields.

伊計島の港 Port of Ikejima

伊計島の小さい港かなあ。小さいの船並んでいる、空もすごくきれいだから見ると嬉しいのため息ぐらい出るよ!ポストカードの景色かなあ?

There is a small port in Ikejima where many little boats dock in a row, The sky is really beautiful and cloudless and this scenery really makes one sigh with pleasure. It looks like a scene out of a postcard.
