When you attend your first do, you are hooked. Wonderful people and amazing organizers. I enjoyed watching from home as I couldn’t make it this year, but I am nearly packed for next year .. ah ha! Hoping the location is announced soon

So, no post do this year? I thought I read in an earlier message that they would return to Seoul?

It was a pleasure meeting everyone at the Okinawa Japan DO. A special thanks to our organizers, from both of us. Posting from the domestic terminal, awaiting Sky552 OKA-NGO.

No post do this year. It has been pushed, er postponed to next year! Does that make it the post post Do?

A few years ago there was a visit to an onset, complete with a lavish dinner. I missed out that time, but Iím hoping it shows up next year!

I hope everyone had a really great time. I loved sharing my adoptive home with all of you. Tokashiki island yesterday was a blast. Safe travels home and see you next year!

Thanks to the organizers for setting up some epic adventures and dining.
Onboard "express" bus 117 for the Churaumi Aquarium.

Indeed, thanks for showing us around! Agreed on yesterday, I was happy all 8 of us, and both vehicles, made it back safe and sound! I'll post the photos and a dropbox link in the Facebook group, as for beckoa I'll send a carrier pigeon with the link to the group photos we took with my digital camera tonight once I get back to Tokyo. Sitting at OKA waiting patiently to fly in an economy middle seat to HND

Edit: middle seat economy flight was no bueno. Completely packed flight, too hot of a cabin, and no strong zero available, either BoB or self catered

Many thanks for organizing this - the island trip was a blast! Had a great time connecting with old friends and meeting a few new faces.

*NB: the tin shed descriptor of the LCC is not one iota of exaggeration. A large shed. But accurate.

Uh huh, at least thatís the express option that takes 2 hours. We did the non-express option that requires a change in Nago and thatís more than 3 hours! Not to mention we spent almost an hour hunting for the correct bus stop after finishing at Tomari Iyumachi

Haha you proved me right. Happy to catch up with you again, itís a pity I didnít see kirkwoodj and the rest of you more! Big Thank You to the organisers, next time if you would like someone who has a lot of spare time spent perusing websites for trip research, Iíll be happy to help out. And also thanks to nme7 for the WhatsApp help!

P.S. Guess what, my +1’s flight which was supposed to be 1h20min earlier than mine, ended up departing after mine and it’s going to be landing about 20-30 mins after mine in PVG...

Still recovering from Japan Do in Naha? Itís time to start thinking about Hokkai-Do aka Japan Do #7 which is only 360 days (or so depending on where you live) from today!

Hokkai-Do, the Do formerly known as Japan-Do #7, 19-21 April 2019
