The Okinawa islands are known as Japan’s sunniest tropical paradise, offering views and experiences that are not often associated with the traditional image of the country. Exactly because of that Okinawa adds colourful variety to Japan’s cultural traditions and natural landscapes. Comprising of over 100 islands spread over 1400 square kilometers in the Pacific Ocean, Okinawa’s cobalt-blue sea, coral reefs and tropical plants are on par with some of the world’s most famous island resorts. In addition, the historical legacy of the Ryukyu Kingdom that ruled over the islands before they became part of Japan at the end of the 19th century guarantees immersion in well-preserved distinctive cultural traditions. Okinawa is home to several UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites among which is the unique Shuri Castle in Naha city.
Okinawa can be generally divided to the main island (also called Okinawa or “Honto”) and dozens of remote islands, among which particularly popular are Ishigaki, Iriomote, Miyako and Kerama Islands. The all-year round warm weather and biodiversity offer excellent opportunities for outdoor and marine activities. Visitors will likely enjoy snorkeling or diving with tropical fish, whale watching, riding a canoe among mangroves or stand-up paddle-boarding. Okinawa is also home to Japan’s largest Churaumi Aquarium, multiple memorials related to the World War II, tropical orchards and some of the country’s best beach resorts.
