过年不回家A small beach in Ocean Expo Park, next to the Walrus. You can't go in at will. It seems that there is a coral sanctuary and a small one-person beach. You can take a look outside. There is a volcanic island on the opposite side. It is beautiful.

The tickets are not cheap, but the aquarium is actually pretty incredible. Also, there is loads to do outside as well. See the dolphin show, feed the turtles and dolphins, play at the playground, walk the gardens.
When I first entered the aquarium, there were large and small water tank exhibitions, and all kinds of fish were stupid and cute. Going deep into the depths, I saw the signboard of the "Sea of the Kuroshio" and finally saw the big whale shark.
The tank of the Kuroshio whale shark is three or four stories high. People can choose to watch the whale shark at different heights. It is dark inside and only sees the big whale shark in the faint blue and blue.
The blue color seems to have a breathtaking power, as if we live on the bottom of the sea, looking up at them flying, the light outlines the image, they are huge and serene, lonely and uncontested.
There is a famous coffee shop in the aquarium, you can drink coffee to see sharks, but I have already had a full picture when I went, which is a pity.
There is a raised observation room next to the three-story panoramic observation room. It is possible to see the whale shark swimming over the top of the head at 180 degrees. You can also see the diver greet us~
There are several levels on the ground. The steps can sit and watch quietly. What's more, here is different from the panorama. There is light here, so you can take a photo of people here, so you take a camera and take a picture on the steps. The sharks and fish are just swimming.
After taking the photo, it was just the whale shark feeding. The big guys headed out to pick up the food to pick up the food. The audience in the hall exclaimed.
I prefer the name "black tide" than the scientific name "whale shark". It seems that there is a deep and dangerous feeling.
The beautiful sea aquarium is one of the important destinations for my trip. In order to stay in the aquarium for an extra hour, I can arrange time to watch various performances. I did not book a day trip, but I took a fast bus from Naha. The aquarium really didn't disappoint me. The two phones didn't get electricity. Although the temperature in Okinawa was humid and humid in September, it was good to be air-conditioned indoors and to have fun.
The ocean around Okinawa is a habitat that is formed by the three elements of the huge warm current "black tide", coral reefs, and the deep sea in the east and west of the South West Islands. It is a mysterious sea world with rare world rare earth populations. The beautiful sea aquarium condenses the Okinawa waters by means of waves, Kuroshio and deep sea tours, giving visitors a comprehensive Okinawa sea.
Entering from the entrance, the first part is the touch pool, which is close to the creatures in the coral reef pool.
Looking and watching, turning a corner, the huge "sea of the Kuroshio" appeared in front of me. I have seen countless photos of the Kuroshio Sea before, but only at the scene can I feel the shock and excitement of the scene. In the 7,500 cubic meters of sea water, three giant whale sharks over 14 meters swim around your head, from time to time to meet you or pass by.
Walking down the spiral staircase, close to the glass of the 10-meter high sink, in front of the huge sea screen, people are so small. Look closely at the depths of the blue, up to five or six meters, only one thin tail has more than 1 meter long ghost manta, black "ghost face" drifting, it is easy to be scared.
Sakura is the national flower of Japan, and Okinawa is the earliest place for Japanese cherry blossoms. To see the cherry blossoms, Okinawa can sneak a sneak peek.
Yakusho is the earliest open place for Okinawa cherry blossoms. The cherry blossoms that open from the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain adorned the Yae-jou into a sea of flowers. Yae-Yue is very big, cherry blossoms are not concentrated, and many tourists are driving to watch. Because Yae-Yuyue has fewer cars and narrow roads, it is easy to cause traffic jams during cherry blossom viewing.
In addition, the famous street is also full of tourists who enjoy cherry blossoms. In addition to the cherry blossoms, the entire city will go to the party on the street, very lively. The famous park next to the Orion brewery is where the cherry blossoms bloom. The location of
Naha Cherry Blossom Festival is located in the Park of Heyi Park in Naha City, with about 400 cherry trees. It is not far from the international park, the Huwu, and the Makishi public market. Walking, monorail, or taxis are easy to reach.
The aquarium introduces you to the mystery of Okinawa’s marine creatures, starting with the naturally lit Coral Sea tank, which exhibits a large selection of coral reef. Next is the enormous, dynamic Kuroshio Sea tank, where you can observe the world’s biggest fish as well as whale sharks and manta rays, which, in a world first, the aquarium has succeeded in breeding. And as you go deeper into the aquarium, you will encounter the Deep Sea tank, in which the which the mysterious deep sea of Okinawa is reproduced, allowing you to experience Okinawa’s entire underwater world. #wintergetaway
Its still early to come back from the emerald beach. I think its better to go to Fumulin Road in the other direction. This is a very Buddhist idea, I did not expect it to be completely stunning! In fact, Motobu-cho in the northern part of Okinawa has not only the famous Ocean Expo Park, but also the very small place of Fumulin Road. It is a hidden village surrounded by forests. There are 20,000+ buckwood trees over 300 years old. It was planted by Okinawa people who lived there for the sake of moisture and wind. Over time, a pleasant avenue was formed. When the weather is good, strolling between them, the sun shimmers in the dense foliage, and the roots of the old trees are intertwined, as if walking into the fairy tale world of the Wizard of Oz. There are two main roads in the whole area, as well as many small roads leading to the sea. The end of the lush forest tunnel is the blue sea, so the quiet picture makes people look forward to it. Many Okinawa locals will come here to take a photo shoot!
In addition to the forest landscape, there are many family hotels and restaurants in the entire Fumulin Road area. Their styles are often Japanese-style and early-morning. They are simple but have their own characteristics. Photographing is also very beautiful. You can get blue sky and blue water outside the sea. The other side. You can also rent a bicycle at the entrance or experience the characteristic buffalo car, and have fun.
[Fumulin Road TIPS]
Emerald Beach is an artificial beach near Okinawa Ocean Expo Park. It is Y-shaped and is the only lagoon beach in Japan. Enjoy the beauty of the emerald green waters and white coral reefs on the beach. Near the Emerald Beach, there are attractions such as Ocean Expo Park and Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, which are also popular attractions for summer fireworks. Visitors who are not staying nearby can take the boardwalk from Ocean Bo Park to the beach. The water is shallow and the waves are suitable for small babies.
On the last day of Okinawa, unexpectedly clear skies! The Emerald Sea, which has seen countless times in the photo, is getting bluer as the angle of illumination changes. Hurry to take the suyi walk from the hotel to the beach, the hotel walked 2 minutes. On the last day, Emerald Beach finally showed us its true face value generously. Because the weather is good, the blue of the Emerald Sea is not lost to some well-known islands, but the sand is just as thick as the nets. But the sea is absolutely clear, and the A-grade water is not covered. If it is summer, it must be a good place to play with water.
The wind on the beach is still very large, and there are not many people, but the hotel still arranges lifeguards intimately. Sun, sea, beach, lifeguards, the standard summer comes to the picture; the ice-cold soda that is still a glass bottle is perfect.
Cost: Public beach, free of charge (free access to the park, free shower facilities)
allowed swimming time: April 1st - September 30th (8
[Love Okinawa] When you come to Okinawa, you must not miss the Okinawa Beauty Sea Aquarium, which has several "world first" reputations. It is located in the Ocean Expo Park, which was converted from the clubhouse of the First World Ocean Expo. As we step into this colorful ocean world, the life-like underwater world is exciting for us. Tropical fish are free to swim in a cluster of red corals, in the clear clear water, so comfortable, at the entrance to the aquarium, we are deeply attracted by the beautiful sea world. In the touch pool, visitors can truly touch the sea creatures living in coral reefs such as starfish and sea cucumbers, and learn about the marine life living in the tidal areas of the ocean. My daughter likes to touch the starfish most. Through the sense of touch, the children have a more perceptual understanding of the sea animals. Visitors can witness the spectacular 800 coral reef communities of 70 species of coral. The most exciting thing is that when a whale shark with a body length of 7 meters and a huge front manta ray appear in front of you, would you be watching a 3D blockbuster? This is the most proud honor of the Aquarium of the Sea, with the world's largest fish tank known as Guinness's world's largest plexiglass wall. The huge sea of Kuroshio is the world's largest fish: whale sharks, and the world's first successful artificially cultivated manta ray. Tips
This is the most beautiful place in Okinawa - Okinawa Ocean Expo Aquarium. Churaumi is the clear and beautiful ocean in the Okinawa dialect. The most eye-catching is the huge main aquarium the sea of the Kuroshio, which runs through the first, second and second floors of the aquarium. Once a Guinness World Record, it can now be surpassed elsewhere. The Kuroshio Sea swims with the world's largest fish: whale sharks, and the world's first successful artificially cultivated manta bat. Point, people gather in front of the huge water tank, watch the breeder feed the whale shark, don't look at this behemoth, their food is actually plankton-based, gentle, free to swim in the blue sea.
