There are many ways that one can go about exploring Okinawa. Almost always some sort of preparation is made in order to ensure that you know where you’re going and how to get there. This can be done in many ways although the best, at least to our knowledge is via an internet mapping system. This allows you to zoom in to specific areas and have an idea of what to expect during your trip.
Knowing where we were heading we found ourselves on a tight road which is not uncommon here in Okinawa. We continued moving towards our target destination and once we got close and started looking around we found ourselves in a spot where the road was no longer paved and was now the red clay that Okinawa is known for. There was a turn around point just about 10 feet in we we went for it and it was too late. We had gotten stuck.
Certainly this is a funny situation and I was happy to post the video because I figured it would get a good ole chuckle out of some of you but the truth is I hope that some of you who are preparing to explore Okinawa take this into consideration. Sometimes the roads we think are good to drive down simply aren’t.
