Okinawa islands on Japan's southernmost prefecture on the Pacific Ocean offers an unspoiled and quiet retreat from mainland Japan. It is the country's most laid-back islands and visitors can pleasure in an island peace leaving behind the frenzy and elaborate bustles of modern Japan.
Appropriately known as the Ryukyu Islands, named after the kingdom that once flourished here, Okinawan culture is distinct from that of the mainland with dialects that are only spoken in this area of the country. There’s plenty to do here. Enjoy snorkelling and scuba diving in the warm and clear waters of the Ishigaki Island or take a boat ride to see and get a sense of traditional Okinawan architecture in the picturesque island of Taketomi which is also a favourite for families. Take pleasure in guilt free Okinawan food which is linked to Okinawans secret to a long life; local foods such as soba, sea grapes, goya chanpuru, and jasmine tea are unique to the islands. Sail to the faraway Yonaguni Island to sample awamori a distilled spirit native to Okinawa and take a dive in the “Monument,” an underwater formation resembling the ruins of a lost city.
Be it a retirement holiday gift for your parents to say thank you or a trip to celebrate life-long friendships, each of Okinawa’s main islands featuring its own unique charms have something in store for everyone with surprises and discoveries along the way. It is safe to wander away in this almost paradise on earth islands not knowing what you will discover because a wrong turn might find yourself in a field surrounded by blooming lilies or stumble upon a funky beach bar full of Okinawan surfers. You can rest assured that a trip to Okinawa will be a trip of a lifetime.
