Nakabaru on Ikei Island
Thursday - March 16, 2017

Nakabaru is the remains of a village that existed over 2,000 years ago on this tiny remote island.
A nice thing about this attraction is that there are ample English-language descriptions of the remnants
of this ancient village.

The first thing that we saw was a huge stone-axe to greet us!

Thanks to Okinawa Iyasi (Facebook friend) for providing the translation for these next two photos! Domo arigato gozaimasu tomodachi!

Dr. Bung and Kelly shopped around and decided upon which place was to be their new home.
