I have been stationed in Okinawa for one year now. Each base has a unique travel program coordinates tours on the island and off. I have gone on roughly ten trips so far. I am going to start capturing some of my adventures and sharing them here with you.
On Mother's Day 2022, I attended the trip to Kariyushu Kanna Thalasso Laguna. This tour cost $30 to attend with the travel group booking.
We were given a key, assigned a locker, and handed a towel. Then, I headed to the locker rooms. I took my shoes off outside the locker room as shoes weren't allowed. I was surprised not to see a rule against two-piece swimsuits, but I packed a one-piece to be safe. I walked through the shower room, rinsed off, and headed to the indoor spa area first. Photography was not allowed in this area.
After you were done, time to hit the locker room again, where shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were provided. I took the time to blow dry my hair with the spa's provided blow dryer (which I never do). Totally forgot a brush, but drying my hair saved the day.
They did have a towel wringing machine that looked like a washing machine. I wanted sooo bad to try it but had no idea how to use it and didn’t want to break it.
Overall, I would rate this trip a 9/10—a two-point deduction for the adventure bento box. But, add a point back for the Blue Seal Vanilla ice cream, which I enjoyed after the water.
NOTED: I will show up full next time
I would love to go again on a sunnier day. This laguna offers beach access as well I want to check it out! I packed a towel which isn’t needed since it is provided.If in Okinawa, highly recommend it!
