Pictures of Miyakojima, Japan

I have been here in Miyakojima for about 7 months now and am pretty well settled in. The weather is getting much better now that we are hitting mid May and the ocean is gorgeous. My Camera broke about a month ago due to the number of times it was accidentally dropped, so I haven't been taking a ton of pictures lately. I am still looking for a good replacement that will shoot decent shots and has a good zoom. I am also looking at models that will allow me to take it into the water and also ones that have hd video available. If you have any recommendations please let me know.

In the meantime, I started taking a few shots with my cell phone. It doesn't have a zoom and the megapixels aren't that high, but for small shots it actually does pretty good. Anyways, here are some of the photos I have taken in the last months.

I have also posted some videos of some traditional Okinawan songs and taiko as well as hula dancing that was performed at Tokyu resort hotel on Japanese Words. You can find the the videos as the link below.

Official opening of the ocean day. It was kind of funny, because they basically closed it off to open it.
