Japan Okinawa Naha Food

7 November 2018

I have developed a taste for tarts now

It is my last night in / on Okinawa / Naha. I like slashes. I decided I had better eat some of the Okinawan delicacies. I already had a blue seal ice cream at 10am yesterday, the one thing remaining then, a purple sweet potato tart / tartlet. And I liked it a lot. As you will see it was delicious and purple.

After a fairly lazy day I set off a bit earlier than other nights and took a tour around the perimeter of the local Japanese Defence Force base. I identified at least 3 weaknesses in their security, they are lucky I was hungry and had no time to launch an assault.

Before I am allowed to eat though, I have to make sure I have 30,000 steps. So I marched up a hill alongside the awesome monorail passing various stadiums until I reached another shopping centre and its many attractions within.
It was then time to march back down the hill and have the dinner I had decided on last night. I made a plan, I stick to it. Even though I saw a better option on my journey.

Tomorrow I fly back to Fukuoka. I have been there before but not for a few years. I remember the last time I was there they were gripped in star wars fever! Will they have moved onto the next big thing? Will I find mountains? Do they have their own special tart? Only time will tell.

And here is a Japanese coast guard ship that patrols the East China Sea, they are not allowed to have an actual navy still I dont think. Actually I just checked, the coast guard is different, and their main task is to repel North Korean fishermen.

Over the road from the military base is this theater shaped like a samurai helmet. I believe every Japanese city has one the same. Inside they mainly do karate demonstrations.

Instead, I went and had my vegetarian curry thing, for only 650 yen! I was very satisfied because it was cheap. This was in the basement of a department store where I could sit at the counter and glare at everybody as they went past.

After my cheap dinner, I treated myself to the Okinawan specialty, purple sweet potato tartlet. It was tiny. Now I want ten more. Maybe for breakfast tomorrow before I go to the airport?
