Life, By Okinawa
Sponsored by Okinawa Prefecture, Japan
Oh to live forever (or at least for a very long time).
The longer I live, the more I realise that I want to live. I know that sounds a little gloomy but the truth is, when I was younger, I had no idea how to live. I drank too much. Worried too much. Ate the wrong things.
Now I am older, I know that diet, sleep and attitude are critical to whether life is worth living or not.
Which brings me to Okinawa, the southernmost island of Japan, home to the world’s oldest people.
Purple sweet potato and seaweed are partly to blame for this freakish longevity, but there is something else. Some magic that can only be unlocked by visiting.
Life, By Okinawa is a video series created by Okinawa Prefecture to help Aussies understand the extraordinary experiences available on Japan’s southernmost island.
