What you'll do
Allow me to be your Okinawan "spirit animal" and guide you through this experience in Koza. Off the beaten path is the route we'll take, and depending on the time of year, weather, and the color socks you're wearing, the original plan may just go out the window! The intended plan is as follows: 1. Hit up one Izakaya (tapas style bar) so we can break the ice with drinks and small dishes 2. Go to 1-2 more bars for more drinking 3. Head to one of the local clubs/venues for good music, dancing, and more drinking (I have a good pulse on the local house/techno scene, but there are other options available...) 4. If you’ve worked up an appetite, we can visit one of the many hidden gem food spots for REAL Okinawan comfort food...or just keep the party going. We’ll have a group vote! There's a famous Okinawan saying in the local dialect: "Ichariba Chode" which translates to "Once we meet, we are brothers and sisters for life." I believe that this saying embodies the Okinawan spirit, and I am looking forward to sharing it with you!
I've been living in Okinawa since 2010, and it STILL enchants me with its unique mixture of laid-back vibes, simplicity, and warmth. Koza, in particular, is a great location to experience a resurgence in the local nightlife; with quirky izakayas, awesome music bars, and hidden dives waiting to be discovered (not to mention great food!). I'm a very outgoing and social person, who loves to connect with anyone through drink, dance, and/or thoughtful conversation. Let me share my love of Okinawa, and give you a local experience you won't forget!
I will be bringing a camera for candid shots/video for memories (with your consent, of course)!
