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.
Looks like a great place to be in summertime. Unfortunately during the winter time alot of things are closed (pools outdoor hottubs etc) not sure why they wouldn't keep the outdoor hotubs operating during winter time.
It was a fabulously located close to Kokusai dori and all the staff had good Omotenashi spirit rooted in Japanese culture. We enjoyed walking to the Kokusai dori and bathing in the hot spring (kind of salty flavor😁) every day. Breakfast was included and with the variety of different foods offered, ...
The facilities are good, many choices of restaurant in the hotel; spacious and comfort room, it will be great if do the cleaning and pest control properly. The customer service is excellent, beautiful sea view from our room, was enjoyed to stay here.
Good location, clean room and helpful staff. Complimentary coffee and biscuits available from 7.00am to 8.00pm in lounge at lobby.
The room has great view of the sea, it has big bathroom with rboth rain shower and bathtub which is good to relax after long day. Beds are comfortable, but the pillow is too soft and small.
Not a fan of firm (hard) mattresses, but the couch worked out for the 1-day stay.
Location is good and hotel is acceptable for the price. Not all staff speak English and communication can be difficult. Overall value for money hotel
