What’s Special about Okinawa?

The birthplace of karate and the seat of the Ryukyu Kingdom, Okinawa has some unique claims to fame. And let’s not forget the diving here is world class, along with the islands’ beautiful beaches and jungle interiors. Okinawa is truly a one-of-a-kind getaway that ranks among Japan’s most enchanting destinations.

Unique Character

This is one of those rare destinations that’s got it all: stunning beaches, great diving, diverse cultures, fascinating traditions and amazing seafood fresh from the ocean!

History

Mixing a native heritage with a long trading and tributary history, Okinawa has taken on the languages and cultural influences of China, Japan, America and even Southeast Asia. Vestiges of the Ryukyu Kingdom, which reigned from roughly the 15th to 19th centuries, can still be visited.

Manta Rays

One of Okinawa’s most amazing natural sights is to glimpse the manta rays that live and breed in these waters. But what’s even better is to swim with them! If this is something you’re dreaming of, we’ll make it happen.

Okinawan Food

Part of the Okinawan identity comes from its distinct and famously healthy regional cuisine. The Okinawan people blend Chinese and Japanese culinary styles, and add a dash of Southeast Asian ingredients and influences.

Entertainment

If stunning beaches, great diving and amazing seafood still doesn’t satisfy your need for entertainment, don’t worry. Okinawa is home to diverse entertainment venues and nightlife. Aquariums, theaters, live music—you name it.

Language

Did you know Okinawans have their own language? And while Japanese is the official language of the islands, English is spoken by many in the tourism industry—including our locally based guides.
