朝一番の便だったので、 60人乗りの船に乗客10人ほどでした。
景色も素晴らしいですが、高齢らしき船長兼ガイドさんの話が
面白くて70分ほどのクルーズがあっという間でした。

間近で巨大なサキシマスオウノキが見られます。

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
