Well, honestly, I love how everything is an art over there. Tea is an art. Writing is an art. The traditional clothing seems meaningful. I enjoy how modernity is rampant, but I also love how history is still lurking everywhere.

Been there it is nice. Went there during cherry blossom season. Went to a tea ceremony. What I like best is how they combined the traditional Japanese culture with modern Japanese culture.

Just so you know, Okinawa is not part of mainland Japan. It's one of the Ryukyu islands, and up until 1872, it was its own country before Japan annexed it (sort of like how Hawaii was its own country before the U.S. annexed it and made it one of its 50 states).
i went backk in 2010 for a week long tour- it was sooo freaking hot!! il never go in july gonk

Well, I did say I have travel guides so yeah, I know Okinawa is the most southern and is really an island chain. Thanks for your concern, O Fountain of Knowledge.

Around the 1609 is more of the time period where it was not "legally annexed" but pretty much under submission to Japan. neutral I, from what I can see, do not like the Meiji era as it brought in a lot of, like Hawaii, bans on Okinawan culture. neutral
