cherry blossom The beautiful color of pink brightening the moss green mountains in Okinawa is a visible sign of spring making its way to the island. By climbing up to the observatory, an amazing beauty of emrald green ocean together with the pink cheery blossoms can be overviewed.
In Okinawa, the cherry blossoms begin to bloom from the Northern Okinawa Main Island (Yae-dake and Nago Castle Ruins) from the end of January and they are in full bloom on the Southern Okinawa Main Island (Yogi Park and Yaese Park) in the middle of February.
