On January 27, Okinawa’s historic cold weather eased away and a tulip fair started at the Tropical Dream Center in Okinawa Expo Park, Motobu. Visitors enjoyed about 80,000 tulips in 48 varieties.
Naoko Yashiki, who visited the park from Saitama with her family, said, “Okinawa is warm.” Her five-year-old daughter Shiori said with a smiling face, “Pink tulips are cute.”
Haruho Yagi, a staff member at the center, said, “We also want many local people to see the tulips.”
