Okinawa

 I will post about Okinawa prefecture for a while.

Okinawa is located in South East Japan.

The prefecture consists of 160 islands. 

The biggest one is Okinawa Honto.

It is surrounded by the beautiful ocean, the color of it is often emerald green.

This photo is the ocean of Kouri island which is on north side, crossed by Kouri Oohashi Bridge. 

Ariake sea

  

This is a view of Ariake sea.

It’s a bay located in the northwest area of Kyusyu and surrounded by Nagasaki, Saga, Fukuoka and Kumamoto.

And it is one of the biggest tidelands in Japan.

Many interesting creatures live there.

One famous one is “Mutsugoro (Mudskippers)”.

They are about 15 centimeters long and crawl using their pectoral fins and move by jumping on the mud. 

It is an unusual looking fish and has funny movements, so people go to watch them.

I would like to see it sometime.

By the way, it is edible.
