Caves of Yomitan

DSC09285DSC09284 Don’t worry mom, they are perfectly safe. Just a few bats here and there (just kidding, no bats at all). You might think so the way that Anna looks, she was a little afraid, but she did great. The story behind this cave; During WWII, over 1,000 Okinawan people were hiding here. A Japanese, Hawaiian American soldier risked his life and encouraged the people to come out of this cave. He did not know that there was over 1,000. He was a hero. Hollywood actually made a movie about his life. We all had a good time in the cave (check out Michal’s face).
