Video about Okinawa


Japan's southernmost prefecture, Okinawa is a chain of islands with its own history as an independent kingdom and a distinctly subtropical climate, as well as the birthplace of karate. Explore the ruins and restored castles of the Ryukyu kings, and visit magnificent beaches and coastlines with an amazing array of coral and undersea life. Come for whale watching and dragon boat races, rare flora and fauna, and an island mindset that makes you forget the clock and follow the sun.


The Okinawan Islands are surrounded by the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean, and consist of the Miyako Islands, Yaeyama Islands, and others. Their location provides convenient access to the mainland Japan and several regions throughout Asia.


Okinawa is warm and comfortable throughout the year. When March begins, it becomes warmer day by day and more comfortable to spend the daytime outdoors. April is the early summer in Okinawa, when they start to open oceans in various places there to swimmers. You will need a light coat or jacket since it may get very cold at night..
