Okinawa, Japan’s most southern prefecture, has a stunning blend of unique heritage and modern Japanese culture set amongst beautiful beaches and natural beauty with a sub-tropical climate most of the year. Most of the islands, including Okinawa-Honto, Miyako and Ishigaki can be easily accessed from Tokyo and Osaka, as well as other areas in Japan.
Miyako-jima is situated in the Pacific Ocean about 300 kilometres to the southwest of the Okinawa Main Island. This is the place to go if you are after a white sandy beach holiday in Japan. Water activities, including scuba-diving and snorkeling are possible, in addition to abundant marine life and beautiful coastline. The islands surrounding Miyako are also within easy access via bridges. Numerous beaches mean that you’ll never be short of sun and sand, and if you use a rental bike or car, exploring this island is easy and rewarding.
ISHIGAKI (PART OF THE YAEYAMA ISLANDS)
Ishigaki-jima is the main island of the Yaeyama archipelago. From mountains to coral reef and clear blue waters, Ishigaki will have something for everyone. Aside from its beaches and typical water-based activities, Ishigaki and nearby Taketomi (amongs other islands) retain their old Okinawan culture which is markedly different to that of mainland Japan. Houses with red tiled roofs and transportation by water-buffalo are examples of this. Inter-island travel is by short journeys on ships, meaning that each island can be easily done as a day-trip from Ishigaki.
