Japan - Okinawa & the Southwest Islands (PDF Chapter)

The Southwest Islands reveal a Japan you may not know exists: a chain of semitropical, coral-fringed islands evocative of Hawaii. But spectacular nature is only part of it – the Southwest Islands exude a peculiarly ‘un-Japanese’ culture – the Ryūkyū cultural heart still beats strongly here.

- soak up the sun on one of the Kerama Islands white-sand beaches

- dive with playful manta rays at Ishigaki-jima
