Meet some locals on this relaxed and slow paced cycle tour through Nakijin Village, where we live. Suitable for kids as young as 8 years old. We will cycle through the narrow, sleepy and shady lanes of one of the hamlets within Nakijin Village, along the way we will take a look at some beautifully maintained gardens and original Okinawan houses and explain the reasons, disadvantages and advantages between new and old construction and designs. We will share with you the local importance of the strong and protecting Fukugi (Garcinia subelliptica) tree. Visit a getou (Jade/shell ginger) plant extraction factory, where the plant leaves are ground and then heated to produce condensation and the extract produced, getou is a well-known plant, native to Okinawa and is used to make all sorts of facial, skin and hair treatments. Along with fascinating local knowledge and village history you are invited to spend time relaxing in our garden (drinks and local snacks provided) to get a glimpse of how we live. The experience is approximately 2.5 hours.
Hi, We are Nik and Diego. Nik is from the UK and Diego is from Australia, between us we have lived in Nakijin (Northern Okinawa) for 6 years. We enjoy the laid back vibes that Nakijin provides, with just the right balance of access to nature but with a community and amenities not far away. Nik is trained to British Canoe Union Standards in Sea Kayak and Diego specialises in sustainable living practices and physical education. Getting to know the local area by bike is a wonderful way get a real feel for what the place is like. Unlike driving, the bike tour provides distinctly unique discoveries.

Small streets and slow paced atmosphere, Imadormari is an Old hamlet, not designed for modern motors, but ideal for our bikes to navigate, flower gardens and traditional Okinawan homes. Green Plan Getou is the factory where they harvest the getou extract, you'll know we are close by the fantastic aroma in the air. Beautiful white sand beach looking out over Nakijin's wonderful turquoise blue reef to the islands Izena and Iheya.
