Flight to Okinawa

Japanese Hawaii

The essential

Okinawa, Japan in the tropics
Okinawa: a little closer to paradise
Welcome to the "Japanese Hawaii". Book your flights to Okinawa, and fly to an archipelago with a subtropical climate, where the lush landscapes set it apart from the rest of the country. Picture perfect beaches and glorious jungle abound: Okinawa has preserved its wonderful natural heritage. Humpback whales come to show off to the visitors in waters off the Kerama Islands Natural Park. Those who love diving will adore the turquoise waters of Ishigaki island, where you can see manta rays and multi-coloured coral. Don't miss the chance to explore Yambaru Park, seeking out the vertiginous Hiji waterfalls.
Okinawa: secret to eternal youth
Tropical currents warm the islands and exert their own influence: the archipelago has preserved various unusual characteristics for which it is famous throughout Japan. Thanks to your promotional plane ticket to Okinawa you can visit the Makishi market and discover the unique local gastronomic speciality, which is said to contribute to the record number of 100-year-olds in the local region. It's called goya champuru, and it's a stir fry made with bitter melon, accompanied by some kuro koji (mushroom alcohol). Next, stop by the Tsuboya pottery museum to admire the emblematic crafts of the region. The museum houses a kiln that is several centuries old.
Okinawa: where history lives on
Therein lies the secret of the region's charm: Okinawa is frozen in time with few concessions to modernity. Your round trip flight to Okinawa brings you to a land where historic eras seem to live on. On Taketomi island, the sandy streets are edged with small stone walls, buffalo pull carts full of visitors, and shisas (guardian lion dog statuettes) guard people's homes. The symbolic Shuri castle has been rebuilt in an identical manner numerous times since the 14th century and today bears witness to seven centuries of wars and dynasties. The archipelago, with its 160 islands, is one of Japan's hidden gems that will be revealed to you thanks to your Okinawa flight booking.

Each year, on the island of Okinawa, Naha Hari festival is a colourful and exciting event on the water. This is a festival for the local fishermen who compete in a dragon boat race. The traditional dragon boats line up, decorated with scales and painted mouths, and the fishermen paddle as hard as they can, hoping to outstrip their rivals. There are three days of dragon boat races, and on the Saturday there's an opportunity for visitors to go for a dragon boat ride themselves. Spaces are limited though and this is a very popular activity so you are advised to get there early.

<B>Okinawa</B> is a small Japanese island in the archipelago. However, it houses the second largest aquarium in the world (after the one in Atlanta, USA). Built on the site of the Universal Exposition of 1975, the aquarium was opened to the public in 2002. Churaumi means "beautiful sea", and indeed it's more than just an aquarium. It's the only place in the world you can see whale sharks in a tank, or rather a gigantic pool measuring 7,500 m². The vast size of these artificial habitats means that even coral grows there. Dive right into this fascinating experience at <B>Churaumi Aquarium</B>.<br/>

Manzamo literally means "a field for 10,000 people to sit" and although you're unlikely to see as many people as that, Cape Manzamo has become a must see for visitors to Okinawa. Amazing rock formations, beautifully clear deep turquoise waters, this is a truly delightful stretch of coastline. Enjoy a stroll along this jagged coastline or go for a dip in the glorious sea. It's a favourite spot among divers and snorkelers, as the waters are home to coral and colourful tropical fish.<br/>
