Walking on Drift Ice
The northern area of Okinawa is popular among tourists. The Churaumi Aquarium is nearby, but there are many old-style Okinawa homes that remain standing conveying a strong sense of timelessness.
One of the most picturesque sites is the Fukugi Tree Tunnel of Motobu-cho Bise area.
Okinawa is struck often by strong typhoons. Thus, lines of trees are planted to protect homes from strong winds. Many of the trees remain from the Ryukyu Kingdom era and are more than 300 years old. Okinawa is often referred to as “Fukuki,” meaning tree of good fortune. A walk through this tunnel is certain to elicit the feeling of good fortune to every visitor.
