VISITING ISLANDS AMONG CORAL REEFS 1/2

 We visited Southwestern islands in Okinawan archipelago. There are many islands among coral reefs there.

 南西諸島の4日間の旅に行きました。

 We enjoyed this 4 day tour. We got on a chartered plane 4 times. I took these photos from the one of the plane.

下の写真は宮古島から石垣島への遊覧飛行の時に写しました。

Almost all islands are surrounded by coral reefs here.
 
珊瑚礁がとても綺麗でした。
 
 
 
 
This sightseeing flight started from Miyakojima island.
 
 
 
 
The sand of all beach was white. Because almost all beach was made of broken coral.
 
 
 
 
Ishigakijima island.
 
 
 
 
Coral reefs are very clear.

The seating capacity is for 39 passengers.

  5. Oh Minoru, what amazing views!
    The colors are absolutely beautiful.
    I especially love the first one. When I look at it, I feel like a bird flying over it. So beautiful.

  13. These are fascinating views of the islands and coral reefs. It makes me wonder if the water there is very warm. You've captured an interesting twist on Walk and Click Wednesday!

    The water around the islands is a stunning colour. I wish I could sit on one of those beaches ...

  17. こんにちは。綺麗ですね。どれも素晴らしい写真ばかりです。ボンバルディア機のQ100は、JALが保有してたので、何回か乗りましたが、確か1~3列目までか、9・10列目の座席を指定しないとプロペラが邪魔になって写真が撮れなかったような記憶があります。座席の確保もうまくいき、天気も良かったようで、ラッキーでしたね。グアム島で駐在員をやっていた時期に、島への離発着で似たような景色を見たことを思い出しました。

       おはようございます。最後列に乗ったので写真を撮ることが出来ました。他の席はプロペラと本体が邪魔をしていました。
       4回この飛行機に乗ったので、通になりました。
       ガアムの美しさも素敵でしょうね。
