Happy Children's Day

So it is children's day here in Japan.

As part of "Golden Week", it is the last of three consecutive national holidays. Many people take advantage of the time off and travel.

We went on a small (close by) trip in our city (Naha). We actually went first to a shrine to see a monument to Bettelheim (see next entry).

Then we went to Kokusai Dori (International Street). They have some interesting things for sale:

In Okinawa they don't waste ANY part of the pig.

These charbroiled snakes (center) are for medicinal purposes. I don't ever want to be THAT sick!
