Yesterday we stormed Shurijo castle in Okinawa before catching a flight back to Tokyo. The castle looked great, although it looked like new construction. This is because it was rebuilt after burning down in the 1940s. I’m not complaining, it just gave the place a different feel. My flights out to Japan and to Okinawa were over the weekend and I had no problems whatsoever, however we had a 4 hour delay getting back to Tokyo. My theory is that the angry Japanese airport gods only work on weekdays. Between the flight and train ride to our lodgings, we got in between midnight and 1am. 4 hours of sleep later, we are back on a train heading to Mt Fuji.
