    About Okinawa

    Okinawa Prefecture is a chain of islands located at the southwestern-most point of the Japanese archipelago. The prefecture consists of 160 islands, both large and small, which are dispersed in a vast marine area of approximately 1,000 kilometers from east to west and 400 kilometers from north to south.

    Due to its geographical location being closest to Southeast Asia, Okinawa has flourished over the centuries through foreign trades and cultural exchanges. Today, Okinawa continues to develop as an international hub with not only its pristine landscapes but also its rich culture.
