Aka Island - Japan

With a population of only 330 people, Aka Island is one of the most beautiful and secluded places in Japan. The beaches feature healthy coral reefs, with plenty of diverse sea life. Between January and April, Humpback Whales can be spotted not far from shore, as they come to breed, and in summer, turtles come to lay their eggs on the sand. Kerama Deer are a unique species of deer that also live on the island. 

Guest houses rent bicycles to tourists, providing a great way to explore the forest further inland on the island. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
