Images of Okinawa

A sampling of life and scenes on this fascinating island, which is part of Japan but closer to Seoul, Taipei, Shanghai, Manila and Hong Kong than to Tokyo. Pictures taken with Sony S75, S85, F707, F717 or V1. For more of my pictures of Okinawa, go to http://community.webshots.com/user/helenpb_
