A Stroll Through Fukushuen Park

This weekend, we explored Fukushuen, a Chinese style walled garden, located in Naha.  It is comprised of open spaces, seasonal landscapes, ponds, springs, and “eight majestic sights.”  One may feed the fish, turtles and pigeons by purchasing fish food at vending machines, which we opted not to do.  Regardless of our being empty handed, the fish, turtles and birds gathered near us in hopes we had hidden treats stashed away.

It took us a little over an hour to make our way through Fukushuen.  For me, the highlight of the trip was the view from the top of the waterfall in the middle of the garden.  The down side?  Being massively bit by insects.  (Fukushuen provides free insect repellent at the gate; we used our own.)

Enjoy the views.
