Okinawa – Japan
Okinawa consists of 160 large and small islands, including 47 inhabited islands, and covers a vast ocean area that covers approximately 400 kilometers from north to south and 1,000 kilometers from east to west. The coral reefs, the crystal blue sea, the white sand beaches and the beautiful natural scenery combine to form a diverse and spectacular natural habitat across the archipelago. A visit to Okinawa also allows you to come face to face with Ryukyu’s unique culture and legends.

The castle was built in the 13th century by Shunbajunki, the second king of Chuzan, and played a key role in several of the conflicts in the centuries that followed.
Shuri Castle has been destroyed several times over the centuries, but has risen from the ashes every time. More recently, the castle was bombed at the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. The castle you see today was rebuilt in 1992.
Kokusaidori (国際通り, Kokusaidōri, literally “International Road”) is Naha’s main street, stretching for roughly two kilometers through downtown Naha. The street takes its name from the former “Ernie Pyle International Theater”, a movie theater that was built along the road after the war.
Starting around the Naha Bus Terminal and Prefectural Hall, Kokusaidori is lined by restaurants, cafes, bars, hotels, souvenir shops, boutiques and department stores. Many shops remain open until 10pm, and live Okinawa music is played at several restaurants.
