I visited Naminoue Beach in Naha in September 2016
Okinawa, the southernmost archipelago in Japan, is known for its tropical weather, sandy beaches, luxurious resorts and clear water. Naha, the biggest city in Okinawa, only has the tropical weather among these. For example the beach in the city, Naminoue beach. It is small, the view is of the port, with its big cranes and industrial building. And now they have even built a bridge over the beach. A big, massive bridge for the motorway. A short cut for the cars ruining it for the beachgoers. The bridge looks horrendous as it towers over the swimmers. A big, massive, concrete slab hovering over us as we try to sunbathe.
