Have a look at photos of wildlife, festivals and travel sites here. Sharing tips for travelers with a twist of humor is part the life I enjoy in Okinawa, Japan.

Might need a Japanese Language Sensei's advice on this but, this could be one of them phonetic changes that takes place in the Japanese language, depending on how you use the word or where it appears in the sentence. I think in certain contexts, in particular how it relates to that so called (Pet Rock), "Danglia" might be the correct pronunciation!
Doc,There's no way I'd argue with a wordsmith such as you. Let's see if we can go down there and convince them!
An interesting place, Mike. Looks like an enchanted forest those first few shots.
Sophie,Yup, I have to get back in there someday when we have nice clear, blue skies and do that place up properly with my camera.The guide remembers me well. That's from the other two times I tried to weasel my way in, without paying !
Lovely shots Mike. Perfect way to spend an afternoon!
Terrific. I've heard of the Valley, but never visited. Now I really want to, having seen your pix.Will wait for your PhD research on the name.
Nancie,It may take a few more afternoons to get the kind of photos I really want but, one of these days I'll getterdun.
Waltmanokinawa,Not a good idea; waiting for my PhD research. I'll be providing some further links in the future, though.Standby...
Hihihih, this post made me smile because my sister and her husband recently spent a good 5 minutes taking photos of a protrusion on a tree which looked like...well...you get the idea
What a fabulous series, Mike... and that last one sure is strange!
Love the photos and the last one seems a perfect climax! I am still chuckling.
Thanks for the warning, Mike, so that I was prepared for the shock! :) Gangala Valley and the caves are very cool -- love the pics.
Denise,Bein' the shy guy I am, I hesitated to post that last photo. But, it could be the biggest attraction in the place!Andrew,Strange, isn't what I'd call the last one. It's humongous. Like, longer than a stretch limo!Jackie,LOL One of the photos I didn't post was where someone walked through the scene with a lantern. Made the thing look like it was spitting fire!Cathy,Thanks. Whenever I shoot something like this site, I figure it's best to be down to earth when it's presented.
Hahahaha, The Valley of KingKongala is the perfect name for it! Nature does have a lovely sense of humor. Thanks for sharing. Best for 2012!
InsideJourneys,Thanks and may you have a Happy, Prosperous New Year, too!
Great place to visit! Happy New Year, Mike!
This looks like a wonderful place to visit. It looks very mystical. Beautiful pictures! Thanks for giving me a chuckle this afternoon. Maybe one of these days you can post the pictures with people touching the pet rock =) Happy New Year!
Muza-chan and Mary,Happy New Years to you, too!
You have such an imagination! What's wrong with the last photo of the rock formation? Hmmmm :)
Sherry,My bust. I should have posted some photos with people in them petting the rock, larger than a stretch limo !
Thanks for your information!
