On the silver week in 2015…

Futsal members ordered me to take them the Okinawa’s beautiful ocean, and
I planned a deep tour of Zamami, where can see beautiful ocean which cannot see in main island of Okinawa.

 

We went there from September 19th to 21st, three days and two nights.

Zamami island was belonged Kerama islands and designated as national park in 2013.

Zamami islands located 1 hour from Tomari harbor at main islands of Okinawa using fast ship.

1. Doing futsal in the islands.

 

For some reason, there is a futsal coat near the harbor of Zamami.
Moreover, usage fee is free!
(In here, it costs 10,000 yen/hour.)

It also has goalposts.
But, we must prepare balls.

When making reservation, all we have to do are calling town hall, and telling them our name, POC and the number of participants.

However…

in this time, no one prepare balls! ∑(゚□゚;)ガーン!

Thus we bought a beach ball reluctantly.

But, this beach ball was excellent with this futsal court!
Because the feeling of grass of court was too comfortable,
we kicked a beach ball with bare feet.

This crated a good atmosphere.

Kicking ball, young men happened to pass and joined us.

 

We played game with 4 vs 3 persons.

Loser team treated beer and at the end,
we drunk beer together.

I could communicate with not my friends but also island’s person.

Because we took futsal in this island, I think.

 

2. Staying the night at the old folk house in the islands.

We went to an old folk house called “てぃーら”, where we stay three days and two nights.

Due to silver week, most of accommodations were booked full.
I searched 2 months before and my acquaintance introduced to me there.

With 5 person, renting 3rooms, it costed 10,000 yen/day.
Convert to a person, it costed 2,000yen/day.
It was pretty cheap!
