Kenmin no Mori Day Hike!

Okinawa has beautiful places to hike. We found the Prefectural Citizens Forest near our hotel and loved exploring the park grounds and tackling the steep climb to the top. You climb hundreds of wooden steps under a ceiling of lush tropical trees.  The sounds of cicadas are almost deafening. Our 3 year old loved it and my husband got a great workout carrying her up the stairs. We felt the freedom of the Okinawa hills. No shoes, no shirt, NO PROBLEM! Watch our video, then get out and hike with your kids!

    Sage is one of the happiest, most engaged child I have the privilege of knowing and it is due to yours and Peter’s willingness to share in all the rich, great adventures that life has to offer. Sage is becoming a citizen of the world! Love and Hugs, Sharon
