Himawari no iro literally means: the colours of sunflowers. Spring comes early in Okinawa this year (2016). Usually, sunflowers begins to bloom at the end of January, but this year “winter” apparently does not last very long as in previous years.
Seeing these large and yellow-glowing flowers on the farm field was so much enjoyable.
These flowers are planted on a small field on the side road near Nakagusuku Castle in Okinawa, Japan. As the day is getting warmer, more sunflowers are expected to bloom beautifully towards the end of January.
Hopefully, this year we can also see some Okinawan Pink Sakura. At least before leaving from this island.
