“Adventures 2016” Calendar

Take us on your Adventure!

Share your adventures with us!

We all know Okinawa and the rest of the Pacific is filled with amazing places, landscapes, cultures, customs and food. Many of us capture those memories through the lenses on our cameras and smartphones. Share your personal adventures with us! If we enjoy your photographs, we’ll publish them in our annual printed calendar. This year’s theme: Adventures 2016.
