Less Than a Beer: Exploring Hamahiga Island

Masaru Takaesu explains how he pumps sea water through a series of bamboo shoots to help evaporate as much of the water as possible before harvesting the salt at the Takaesu Salt Factory on Hamahiga Island during a March 22, 2015, tour. Hamahiga Island, about a 30-minute drive from Kadena Air Base, Japan, offers a couple of free tourist spots. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tim Flack)
