Hello Japan - Japan Travel Guide

Okinawa

Okinawa

Okinawa is the southernmost prefecture in all of Japan. Almost all of the prefecture’s residents live on Okinawa Island, the largest island in this area. Consisting of 49 inhabited islands and 111 uninhabited islands, Okinawa has a subtropical / tropical climate. Unlike the other Japanese subtropical / tropical islands such as Ogasawara Islands and Amami Islands, there are frequent flights from all the major cities of Japan, which helps Okinawa being one of the major tourist destinations.
