On Monday I went down the street to check out Tropical Beach. I had seen the sign while going to the Y100 store and have been meaning to stop by since the beach is so close to our apartment. Monday also happened to be Sports Day, a Japanese holiday. So, the beach was buzzing with bar-b-q parties and different sports programs celebrating. The beach was very busy, I'll have to go back on a non holiday to see what it is normally like. This definitely wasn't a quiet, secluded Okinawa beach, but it was beautiful and it is very nice to have a sandy spot without having a long drive involved.
Sports Day Festivities:
I love Japanese drink vending machines! CC Lemon is delish lightly carbonated lemonade and claims to have 70 lemons in it.
