Day three

Today's flight to Okinawa would depart at 09:40 in the morning. Since I was close to the Airport, just two stops away, I only had to wake up relatively early. The hotel checkout was quick; just chuck the keycard in a box, and you're on your way.

After a coffee at the Airport, it was time to board the flight to Okinawa.

I booked a flight on one of the premium airlines in South Korea, named Asiana, and I'm not entirely sure if that was worth it. Instead of a brand new aircraft that all the low-cost airlines use, I got a multi-decade old Airbus A330 with seatback screens that I hadn't seen in years.

The seats were great, though, and I spent most of my time sleeping anyway.


I arrived in Okinawa around lunchtime (which was served on the flight already) and made my way to the hotel via the Monorail.

The hotel is a Japanese business hotel. It's probably been around for ages, and the interior isn't anything modern, but these business hotels have all the conveniences you'd need, including a very nice free breakfast. Most importantly, these kinds of hotels are always spotless.

It might be old but damned if you can find a single speck of dust.

After settling in, I did a lap around the neighborhood.

The primary mission was dinner, but I stumbled upon a Taco place that had high ratings, so a Taco appetizer it is!

After the Taco, it was time for noodles.

This noodle bar gives you a form where you can completely customize your noodles, from the firmness of the noodles to the amount of oil. I circled the middle values for everything, hoping that would be the default. Regardless, it was delicious!

I made my way back to the hotel through the main shopping street and called it a night.
