Guess what? Okinawa has castles. How very European of them, I know. Actually they're just castles ruins but they date back to like 14th and 15th centuries I believe. Saturday I ventured out with my friend Natalie to one of the closeby ones while our husbands went scuba diving. It was so extrememly hot outside, so maybe not the best idea for the summer. But we got some pretty views of both the Pacific Ocean and the East China Sea from the top, so I guess it was worth it. Out of the castle ruins I've seen here, this one seemed to have the most left standing.
