Like every popular tourist destination in Japan, the city of Okinawa, in Okinawa Prefecture, offers visitors an amazing variety of things to see, do, and eat. However, the islands of Okinawa have a subtropical climate, making them a great place to visit any time of year. Rent a car in Okinawa and experience all that the city and prefecture has to offer, from the unique Okinawan culture that's markedly different from the electric buzz of Tokyo, to the impeccable diving sites located just off the island's coast.
There's no doubt about it: Okinawa is not the Japan you envision when you think of Tokyo or Osaka. Long a tributary of China, Okinawa only became an official prefecture of Japan in the late 1800s. Beginning in the 1950s, it experienced an influx of Western tourists drawn to its wonderful climate and warm, welcoming people. Fish and seafood are a staple of the Okinawan diet, and in open-air markets like Chanpuru Market, you can have the catch of the day grilled and served to you. The airport in nearby Naha is only 21 miles away, and Okinawa car rentals are within easy reach so that you can explore the island. Flights to Naha can be found cheaply and conveniently through the Travelocity mobile app, and after you land, consider visiting Shuri Castle, once the seat of the Ryukyu Kingdom before it was incorporated into the Japanese empire.
Okinawa is a popular domestic vacation destinations for millions of Japanese people every year. It delivers a unique, yet familiar take on mainland Japanese culture, in the presence of tropical warmth and sunlight.
