Okinawa Himawari Matsuri (Sunflower Festival)

We’ve been on the Island for five months now and I’m starting to feel comfortable finding my way around.

That is until I’m trying to find a huge field of sunflowers using only vague directions found on the internet.

One of the “complications” I’ve found living in Okinawa is that I can’t do a map search on my iPhone and then ask Siri to take me to the location I find.  Nope… it’s all in Japanese and Siri gets confused.  Instead you have to have a dropped pin to navigate to or you are stuck following your little blue dot as you slowly make your way to what you hope is the right place.

Even knowing this I piled all three Littles into the car after school and headed out in search of a huge sunflower field that a friend had told me about.

We had some… let’s call them “adventures” along the way but eventually found our way to the sunflowers.

*Totally* worth it!
