Capture Tokyo: Tokyo Disney Sea

Tokyo Disney Sea, Maihama

Since Halloween is coming up, I just thought to remind everyone that in honor if its 15th year anniversary, Disney Sea is holding a villain themed Halloween celebration at their park! The park is currently all decked out in Halloween decor in preparation for that one spooky night! We were lucky enough to catch their special harbor performance, “The Villains World: Wishes and Desires”. The performance was an absolute delight to watch, and the Disney villains sang and danced on large floats while tiny motor boats with kites attached whipped around the lagoon, creating a beautiful choreographed kite dance! In any case, if you’re in Tokyo, I would definitely recommend checking out Disney Sea’s Villains themed park before Halloween ends… although I’m quite looking forward to a Christmas/winter themed Disney (that I’m sure will pop up soon after)!

Capture Japan: Okinawa Glass Bottom Boats

Glass Bottom Boat Ride on the South Shores, Okinawa

I had the pleasure of visiting the tropical paradise of Okinawa last week! Although the weather has gotten a little colder in Tokyo, Okinawa is still sunny and warm (albiet a little hot). I was only able to visit the main island this time, but there’s quite a lot to do for first time visitors. Okinawa is sprawling with beautiful beaches at every coast. I visited the Southern part of the island in one day and covered the Northern in another. It takes about 3 hours by car to get from one tip of the island to the other! At most beaches, there are also fun marine activities available for visitors such as jet skiing, parasailing, surfing, fishing, etc. I opted for the less physical activity though and hopped on a glass bottom boat tour instead (perhaps I’ll try the parasailing next time, haha)! On the tour, the guide took us out pretty far from the shoreline, where I was able to get a glimpse of Okinawa’s beautiful coral reefs and its fishy inhabitants. In any case, Okinawa is a great place to visit, especially if you’re craving that warm sunny weather!
