Okinawa- Travel guide

It is a tropical place with beautiful coral reefs and a collection of resort hotels ranging from budget to luxury.

Naha, the largest city in Okinawa, is home to shopping streets and bars.

In addition to the main island of Okinawa, there are airports on both Miyako and Ishigaki islands, and many other remote islands.

The Kerama Islands, consisting of 20 islands of various sizes, are easily accessible by ferry from the main island of Okinawa, and the beauty of the sea attracts divers from all over the world.


Okinawa was called the Ryukyu Kingdom from 1429 to 1879, and as a result, this place boasts unique cultural features: sanctuaries called Utaki and shamans called Yuta.

Shuri Castle, where the king and his family lived, and Sefa-Utaki, the holiest site in Ryukyu mythology, are registered as World Heritage sites.


Kudaka Island is the sacred place where Amamikiyo, the god who created the Ryukyu Islands, is said to have landed.
It is a good destination to learn more about Okinawa, as many sacred places still remain and maintain their own unique culture.
