Two weeks ago i was finally able to join in on #OkiFunDay with my friends Kassie and Kacey. We had breakfast at CC’s Chicken & Waffles
on the SeaWall and then drove down to Naha for some fun activities. We went coral dying at Shuri Ryusen. I had never heard of this place but Kassie had this on her bucketlist before moving to Okinawa!! As soon as you walk in there is a store where you can purchase professionally dyed items, on the second floor is the crafting area and on the third floor there is a professional studio.
^^ this was an actual vehicle used to carry the emperor of Okinawa back in the day ^^
^^ tiny little nesting dolls ^^
^^ obsessed with the details ^^
You can choose between any of these items (all for the same price, ¥3,200), totes, fabric to cover your coffee mug, fabric for gift wrapping, fabric for framing, t-shirts, among other goodies.
^^ Okinawa Kanji stamp ^^^^ professionally stamped fabric ^^
After finishing our projects we visited the third floor to explore the Atelier where professional coral dying is done.
It was a great day trip adventure for us DIY lovers! Up Next -> Ball Donut Park!
