I Love Okinawa 

There is always a deep connection for Malaysians who grew up watching Japanese dramas on national TVs in 1980’s. I am one of them. Influenced by JPOP, I went for Japanese language training after high school but only made it to Japan a few years ago. That’s one more off the bucket list and also is a dream come true.

As a Japan fanatic, there is one island that needs a slight introduction to our fellow Malaysians – Okinawa. Okinawa is a very unique place, with its history as part of the Ryukyu Kingdom, through to being one of the most famous battle grounds in World World II and now as tourist haven. Some called Okinawa the “Hawaii of Japan” because of its beauty and culture and you can fly there from Kuala Lumpur via Japan or Taiwan.
