Okinawa Food Flea vol. 3

Last weekend there was a day-long power outage where we live… on a SUNDAY! (*ugh*) Thankfully the Okinawa Food Flea was happening the same day 🙂 We left home extra early and arrived there at 11:30. We knew it started at noon but we went to the 2nd one around 3pm and it was absolutely crazy full. At 11:30 there was already tons of people arriving while the booths set up. The first thing we did was get some bacon cheese burgers (and a doughnut!) from Gordies, G got craft beer from Beer Rize and we sat down to enjoy our food. Our friends arrived and we walked around the rest of the booths. We had coffee, beer, burgers, yakitori (grilled chicken), gyros and a fruit smoothie. We did not bring enough money to try it all (sadly) but it was so much fun! I also bumped into a ton of people from instagram!

5 Amazing Day Trips from Okinawa

If you’re looking for the perfect day trips from Okinawa here’s my advice >> pick an island, any island! There are a specific few that are perfect for spontaneous day trips, some you need to…

500 year old Kinjo Stone-paved Road

We drove down to Naha on January 3rd in hopes of seeing the Shuri Castle New Year’s Banquet ceremony, a reenactment of the Ryukyu era New Years celebrations. But sadly I didn’t do enough research…

Christmas Wonderland at Mihama American Village

I had planned on going to most of the events on my Things To Do In Okinawa: Holiday Edition list, but I haven’t been in the holiday spirit much, because my husband has been gone for the past…

    There are many things that I'll miss about Okinawa and I feel like 1/2 of them are included and wrapped up in a perfect little bow for me at the Food Fleas! So awesome!

  • I agree! Do you guys know when you're leaving? 🙁

  • This looks like a great event, I wouldn't know what food to choose though! x

    Hi Laura,
    I'm just wondering what beach this is? I just moved to Okinawa to work at a University here and this beach looks amazing (i'm living in Onna)

  • Hey!! I'm glad to hear you found my little blog 😉 This beach is in Nago, on 449. Once you get out of the expressway keep going straight, you'll pass the Blue Seal and once the road forks (next to the park) take the road on your left onto 449. You'll see the beach once you pass all the buildings on your left. We parked across the street in a little ditch.
