By Maki Paterson    - 1 min read

Relax on a river cruise through the jungle or go kayaking with the family at Bios on the hill (Bios no Oka in Japanese), a nature park with a botanic garden like variety of orchids and sub-tropical flowers. For the adventurous, take a ride on the water buffalo, go canoeing or wave board paddling, while children can have fun at the petting zoo, making this a good place to visit for up to a half day.

There are some shops and a tea house selling taco rice and noodles. The nature park is in Uruma City​ and admission is 710 yen.

Maki Paterson is in love with her home in Naha, Okinawa. The beautiful relaxed sub tropical lifestyle and the friendly people are like family to her. She has a background in international trade, and in her spare time she likes to kick up her heels with Samba dancing, having performed in Tokyo and Sydney. There is so much to see and do in Okinawa, from the Orion beer brewery to Shuri Castle and the Aquarium, so drop in to this blue water paradise and make new friends in the water sports playground of Japan.
