Okinawa Island hopping: 3 days, 3 islands, $300

Stripes Okinawa writer Shoji Kudaka is on a mission: Explore three Okinawan islands in three days and try to keep the cost around $300.
He started his journey 10 a.m. Sunday (May 14) by hopping on a ferry at Tomari Port and heading to Aka Island, a few miles off the Okinawa coast.
After his 90-minute ferry ride, he explored Aka until late afternoon when he jumped on another ferry headed to Zamami Island where he stayed overnight for under $30.
Here are some photos from yesterday. More will come today. And be on the lookout in the next couple of weeks for the complete story. Shoji is going to show you how to travel on the cheap and have a great time doing it!
