G'Day Japan! / Discover / Okinawa, a tropical oasis of hidden discoveries

Adventure, admire and appreciate:


There’s an exquisite mixture of liveliness and calmness that fills the air of Okinawa; is it the subtropical atmosphere and climate? Is it the rich and vibrant marine life? Is it the mystical jungles or the historical World Heritage sites?
Whatever it is, Japan’s southernmost prefecture, right by the East China Sea and the Western Pacific, is made of 160 islands, with six different dialects and a different atmosphere to the one on Japan’s mainland.
The white sandy beaches and the welcoming locals who love to entertain and show their island’s best, and the adventures through the jungles and the ocean all prove that everything beautiful about Okinawa is rooted in its beautiful landscape.
