I don't know if this trail has a name or not. It probably does but I don't know what it might be.
If, after watching this, you know that it has a name let me know.

For now I'm dubbing it the "Hijimuna Serenity Trail" because the little hijimuna guy got my attention. To be frank, ol' hiji got my attention a number of times as I drove past but I never stopped to explore - until this day. In fact, a couple of days or so before this I had stopped and taken some pictures of a garden spot on the corner across from him and even then wasn't inspired to explore the area any further.
But on this day he called out to me, saying, "Mick! For Pete's sake, why don't you stop HERE again!?" So, I did.

On Google it shows the trail leading into the woods right alongside a building labeled "KYU-NA". The trailhead is marked by Google as "89 Zakimi, Yomitan-son, Nakagami-gun, Okinawa-ken 904-0301.

It's a very tranquil place to take a short walk and enjoy the plants and the sounds of the woods. It's not that I'm an ophidiophobe or anything like that, but the prospect of snakes.... wait a second! Yes, I am - or perhaps you'd prefer to say I'm an herpetiphobe! HaHa! I just made a prudent decision to not go traipsing off the beaten path and into the woods.

There's a little kijimuna guy on Rte 12 in Kina Village, on the corner at the first signal light after passing thru the Rte 58 Bypass intersection, driving toward Rte 6. To the right is a trail that leads into the woods. Nice place to check out if you're in the mood for a little serenity time-out! At the tail-end of the video I had my camera attached to the outside of the windshield for a better view. As a result we get to hear all kinds of wind!
