Haisai OkiJETs!

Cherry blossom season is upon us and in Okinawa, they bloom the earliest in January. Every year, Nago kicks off the season with the Nago Cherry Blossom Festival. Normally, we gather a group of y’all for a day trip to the festival but this year, we are doing a cabin retreat.

When: Saturday, January 26th, 2019 – Sunday January 27th, 2019
Where: Nakijin, Okinawa
Cost (SPECIAL OkiAJET DISCOUNT): ¥700 for Cabin/ per person

(More details will be finalized after attendee numbers are determined)
Tentative Schedule:

– Drive up north. Southerners, you should probably think about leaving at 4 pm or earlier because of traffic and because the festival is technically on Saturday as well.

6 pm – cherry blossom viewing at Nakijin Castle
8 pm – dinner at an izakaya near the cabins
10 pm – head to the cabins in the Nakijin Wilderness


9 – 9:30 am – leave the cabins and head to the Nago Cherry Blossom Festival to beat the traffic.

Pricing and schedule is subject to change. Please FINAL RSVP to this event by January 11th (5pm JST) so we can figure out final details!!
