Cherry Blossoms Grace

Night illuminated Cherry Blossoms, a wintertime delight in Okinawa.

Northern Okinawa has a unique distinction of having the earliest blooming cherry blossoms in all of Japan. Though they are different from those found in mainland – you can say they are a distant cousin of sorts, they are nevertheless, just as beautiful. When these pink flowers bloom will depend upon the weather, or rather when the peak cold season begins in Okinawa. In Japanese, cherry blossoms are referred to as ‘sakura’, and usually towards the end of January in Okinawa is when you start to see the ‘sakura’ come alive and with

The Nakijin Gusuku Sakura Festival kicks off on January 26th at the ruins of Nakijin Castle. The castle is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and is the second largest castle on the island after Shuri Castle. The cherry blossom trees around the castle site are illuminated in the evenings from 18:00 to 21:00. However, the castle site opens at from 10:00 to

21:00 every day with last entries to the site at 20:30. Admission is ¥400 for adults, and ¥300 for elementary and junior high school age students. Younger children can enter for free. About 300 cherry trees stand in a single row from the castle gate to the main enclosure.

The biggest and bestknown cherry blossom festival takes place on January 26th and 27th at the Nago City Central Park. This is the famous Nago Sakura Matsuri which runs throughout the day and night. Besides food, drinks,

and game booths, there will be brass bands and a parade on the city’s main street which is closed for traffic during the festival. The main entertainment stage will be along the road.

Good walking shoes or sneakers are recommended for the trek up the wellmarked paved roads and walkways to the top of the mountain, where you can see a spectacular view of not only the cherry blossoms, but of Nago City and the East China Sea. The event draws tens of thousands of locals and tourists alike

every year.

Parking close to the festival area is very limited. The best and free place to park is at the Nago City Fishing Port which will have a gardening festival going on at the same time. From there, a free shuttle bus takes visitors to the festival area. Parking at the port also allows for an easy escape when departing.

To visit Mount Yaedake, continue on Hwy 58 north through Nago City and then turn left onto Route 84 to Motobu. Just before Mo-

tobu, watch for signs that direct you to Mount Yaedake. To visit Nakijin Castle, go through the Nago City following Hwy 58, and turn left on Route 84, heading towards Motobu. Shortly before Ocean Expo Park, turn right on Highway 449 and you’re two kilometers away. The route is clearly marked. To get to the Nago Fishing Port for the Nago Sakura Matsuri, go north on Highway 58 and go pass A&W on the left-hand side. Soon you will see the Nago Fishing port on the left. Signs will be posted.

Nago Agri Park, a Gardener’s Paradise

by Jun Ikemura

Fresh and naturally made products from Okinawa's Yanbaru region.

The Nago Agri Park is a gardening lover’s delight. The park, which opened in 2014, is located next to the NEO Park in the Nago District of Nago City. Here you can find an assortment of agricultural products. In fact, it is a one-stop-shop for Yanbaru (northern Okinawa) products. They also have a green house facility called the “Super Farm”. Here you can take some workshop classes on naturally-made arts and crafts, learn about hydroponic farming, and even rent out a small hydroponic garden inside the green house. The featured facility is their herb garden where you can enjoy the many fragrances of various herbs. If you are hungry, try the “Churashima Kitchen” which provides an Island Vegetable

4

Lunch Buffet Plate between ¥1580~¥2480 which includes a main dish of Beef or Chicken. Dinner buffet is also available from 17:00 costing from ¥1680~. Cafe time is available too from 11:00~22:00. But if you just want Yanbaru/Okinawa-made products you can visit the “Shima Churara” or if you are looking for organic vegetables, then the “Cookhal” may have the veggies you are seeking. So, give the Agri Park a try. Entry is free and lots of parking is available. The park opens from 9:00~22:00 every day (some facilities may close earlier). Address is at 4607-1 Nago, Nago City.

Explore the NEO Park

Up & Close - See over a 100 different kinds of animals at the NEO Park.

by Jun Ikemura

What can you say? Kids love animals, and visiting a zoo is a great way to spend time with the family. The Okinawa Zoo (Kodomo-no-Kuni) is a great place to watch and learn about different kinds animals, but if you wish to get up close and personal then try visiting Nago City’s Neo Park. Opened in 1992, it has been loved by local islanders and foreign visitors alike. Once you enter the park, you will be surrounded by a wide-range of free flying birds. To top it off, you can feed them yourself! The bird food is provided by the park. No outside food is allowed. You will see many kinds of birds like storks, ibis’s, flamingos, cranes, ostriches, and a whole lot more! The park does have other animals as well; monkeys, wallabies, capybaras, turtles are just some of the park animals you can see up close. All together there are more than 100 pieces of animals that inhabit the park with many of which you can

touch. The park is very huge having ecosystems of different themes that derive from the “Amazon”, “Africa”, “Oceania” and more. They even have an underwater tunnel so you can see what it feels like under the river. One other adding benefit to the Neo Park is that they have the “Okinawa Light Railway” where you can sit and ride as you gaze upon the different kinds of animals. The route takes you over a big pond and weaves through some tunnels. This is great with children and especially if you wish to give your feet a chance to relax. The Neo Park opens 9:00~17:30 every day and is located at 4607-41 Nago, Nago City. ¥ 660 for adults, ¥330 for kid,s and ¥220 for age 4 and under. Riding Okinawa Light Railway costs extra. Tel: 0980-52-6348. You can also find information on their website at https://www.neopark.co.jp/ Information can be found in other languages for your convenience.

Horoscope Jan. 25th ~ Feb. 9th Success is right in front of you, and you only have to grab it. Your biggest deficit is that you could become a snob. Taking a pride from your achievements as a team is surely going to bring more satisfaction than emphasizing your own excellence. You also have to make sure that those around you understand you right.

Those born under Taurus are full of ideas to begin the new year. But you also must make sure that you reserve time and space for yourself. You have much more energy if you take time for yourself from time to time. An adventure could be waiting. The challenge is more mental than erotic, but one thing could lead to another.

You are now in a period that you spend a lot of time so deep in your thoughts that it could be difficult to achieve anything practical. This could mark a new phase in your life, but that could also mean that you have to give up something that you rather would not. The main thing is to believe in yourself.

Deep thoughts dominate your head as your own truth has become clear to you and you would like to share the wisdom. But you should recognize that it’s easier for an outsider to see your strong shell that protects you than realize how sensitive you actually are. Don’t let people’s strong reactions hurt your feelings.

You friends are the ones who bring you most joy at this time. But you should be careful with your feelings. Small impulses could easily bring bitterness on the surface. If something irritates you, look at your past experiences instead of blaming others. It’s difficult to steer your feelings, but reactions you can control.

You are happiest when everything goes orderly and according to rules. Others may feel that your emphasis on safety is nitpicking. You should avoid letting the atmosphere get more tense, as there is not much you can do to control it. Besides, you have nothing to be afraid of, as it will be very easy for you to adjust.

Planet Uranus has made you to fight for your ideas for some time, but now you are about to get a boost from planet Mars. It is very easy for you to get into an argument, and there is always someone who takes the challenge. This could be dangerous for your love life, especially as everything old feels rather dull boring.

14

You have a difficulty to decide whether you should go, or should you stay. You get easily bored, but you should have more to base on your decision than your feelings at any given moment. Someone could blurt out something that you take as disparaging, but don’t let that provoke you into taking a hasty action.

Changing your career tack could satisfy your inner desires. However, putting your economic security on back burner, is usually not your piece of cake, but you just could have the courage to do it now. Be careful with your intentions, as just now secrets do not stay secrets for long and someone could take advantage.

If you meet someone who has born Taurus, don’t let happiness to pass you by. Your meeting has a deep meaning. Your grip of your everyday life has been missing for some time, and you should make some firm rules that you should follow. Although you prefer to be left alone, you could enjoy companionship if you take chance.

You are demanding much from yourself, but you should be careful not to judge choices of others through your own glasses. Being generous is the right way to proceed, and remember that you too can be wrong. As far as money goes, just now you are under lucky stars. Just remember, the more you give the more you gain.

This time you should meet as many people as possible. Your aura is very attractive, and it’s easy for you to rally people behind your ideas. But you should take care to keep the decision making to yourself as your intuition is at its peak. Flirting with others is always a part of your life. Do not underestimate yourself.
