The Beauty of Okinawa Japan

I must admit, I don’t know a lot about Japan. It’s on my bucket list to be sure, but beyond Geishas, snow monkeys, and the bright lights of Tokyo, I’m not that fully versed in the country and what else it has to offer. Blame it on action films and nature documentaries, but the Western view of Japan is a mix of women in kimonos sipping sake and downing sushi. But I’m discovering there’s much more to Japan than the typical stereotypes.

A prime example is Okinawa. Did you know that it has a tropical climate year-round? Or that it’s composed of 150 islands wedged between Taiwan and the Japanese mainland? Or that it has some of the best beaches, coral reefs, and scuba diving on the planet? Yeah, neither did I.

Explore Okinawa has released a series of videos detailing what to expect of the islands. They’ve taken a novel approach by sending tourists from around the globe to experience and putting them slightly out of their comfort zone.

Watch and find out as you explore Okinawa and what these islands have to offer.
