We have been very lucky to score two of the only 21 Premium Class seats for their incredible 9000 JPY domestic airport upgrade fee. Hope they still book into F.

I'm at HND waiting on my 8pm flight, so probably arriving in too late to do anything tonight, but group breakfast tomorrow at the DT?

On my way

Sitting in the LH-First Lounge @ JFK (unimpressed) waiting for my JL-F flight (Yippy). Looks like I messed up my plans and am getting there later then usual, so I won't be making it for Thurs night.

I'm at the Novotel Taipei Taoyuan International Airport. Very early flight tomorrow, 06:50 - 08:40 on Tiger Taiwan Airlines. I hope the DT Naha has early check-in!

Paging our dear organizers:

For the weekend plans, are we definitely going to hit either the beach or the Japan naval HQ? Looking for what to do today before happy hour but don't want to do something that's already on the confirmed agenda.

i donít think anything is definite, Iíve been asking for ages and no one has ever confirmed anything. So me and my +1 are making our own plans. We are doing the HQ on Sat morning if youíre still around?

Iím not organising anything since Iíve never been to Okinawa before but Iím thinking of going to Himeyuri Monument this afternoon.
Himeyuri Monument / Himeyuri Peace Museum | Sightseeing | Okinawa Travel Info

Probably not at the top of tourist destinations in Okinawa but as a Japanese I feel I should visit the place Iíve read about when I was young.

I have to move from DT Shuri Castle to DT Naha first to leave my bag before going there late morning. Anyone interested is welcome to join me. It will take 1h15-30mins by bus from the bus terminal close to DT Naha.
