Okinawa is a rare tropical paradise that mixes a beach-going culture with a preservation of the past. Try exciting watersport, tan on white-sand beaches, watch whale sharks gliding in an aquarium or visit a castle that once protected the archipelago’s rulers.
Okinawa is the main island of the Okinawa Prefecture, an archipelago of 160 islands south of mainland Japan. Its main access point is Naha, a busy urban sprawl that also serves as the region’s capital. Find shopping, food and crowds along Kokusai-Dori, Naha’s main street. While here, taste Okinawan soba, a soup-noodle dish famous to the area.
Not far from town, the hilltop Shuri Castle reminds visitors of the island’s ancient history. Take a short drive south from Naha to the Peace Memorial Park, where monuments pay tribute to the quarter of a million American and Japanese civilians and soldiers who died here in World War II. It was one of the Pacific’s most fierce battles.
To the north, the Ocean Expo Park gives visitors the chance to learn about the archipelago’s marine life. See whale sharks cruising alongside tropical fish at Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, home to one of the world’s biggest fish tanks. Nearby attractions such as a re-creation of a 17th-century Okinawan village and a botanical garden boasting more than 2,000 orchids make northern Okinawa a satisfying daytrip destination.
The island features miles of popular and less-crowded beaches that are a great to visit throughout summer. The best swimming months are between April and October. Scuba dive amongst rock formations at Mission Beach or enjoy views from the lighthouse at Cape Zanpa.
Not far from the coast, walk to the Hiji Waterfall or traverse stunning pineapple fields in Nago Pineapple Park. Follow subterranean streams of photograph stalactites at Gyokusendo Cave.
Fly into Reach Okinawa’s Naha Airport from Japan or China. Get around the city by bus. Alternatively, rent a car (or moped) to travel further afield. Tours can be booked through Naha’s travel agencies.
I like: Excellent location with the monorail station a few meters away. It’s a new hotel with a car rental service and daily parking fee was reasonable. Very helpful and friendly front desk staff. Could be better: To have a bigger room so my husband and I can open our suitcases at the same time. ...
Its clean and tidying. It is not close to the main shopping area but its walkable within 10 minutes. And there are lot parking spaces nearby the hotel.
Atendimento excelente, para quem tem filhos ótimo lugar, a loja de conveniência dentro do hotel tem tudo, os restaurantes são ótimos, comida de excelência
Outdoor pool was being renovated and the area around it wasn't available to relax in. It was a long walk to outside restaurants and convenience stores.
Nothing but excellent. We are a family of 7 staying in their biggest room. Love the onsen. Hotel breakfast was awesome. very nice spread. within walking distance to beach and convenient store is just on the ground level. Highly recommended.
Great room near the monorail and near Kokusai Street With public bath till 2am which is good after long day walking Room is very small but bed is comfortable Got good room price during early bird.
