What We Love About Okinawa & Ishigaki

Okinawa is a Japanese prefecture consisting of over 150 islands where the waters are crystal clear and the weather is warm, akin to its Southeast Asian neighbors. This subtropical island paradise guarantees endless summertime fun for everyone! Take a dive into the deep blue sea and meet whale sharks by snorkeling or visit your favorite sea creatures at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. For a unique diving experience, why not participate in Night Diving? Immerse yourself in nature and trek to Hiji Waterfall or enjoy cultural spots such as the ruins of Nakagusuku Castle and the Shikinaen Garden, former home of Ryukyu kings.
