About Okinawa

Okinawa is known as “Japan's Hawaii” for its rich and varied scenery and unique mix of Southeast Asian, Chinese and Japanese architecture. It is also known as the birthplace of karate. The local economy is heavily dependent on tourism and fishing – the surrounding ocean is rich in fish due to its location on a continental shelf. Popular attractions include Shuri Castle and Shureimon Gate.
