Beautiful beaches await you at Okinawa!

But seasoned travellers tend to find themselves constantly asking, “What’s next?”, wondering where to head to satisfy their insatiable wanderlust.

To this there is but one answer – Okinawa!

Situated at the southern most tip of the Japanese archipelago, Okinawa stands out as a unique subtropical island within Japan for many reasons.

Many of Okinawa’s structures have very distinct Chinese influences!

Okinawa’s geographical location has allowed it to have a long historical background of trade and interaction with China and many other Asian countries.

This has led to Okinawa getting a good amount of external influences, lending it a unique flair to just about every aspect of its very being.

Everything about Okinawa has its own flair; from the language to the cultural sights, and especially the food!

And what food there is – Okinawa’s tropical weather has led it to produce some of the most delicious foods around.

Agu Pork, fresh fish, and nutritious vegetables are just the tip of the iceberg in Okinawa’s impressively diverse culinary offerings that are both delicious and healthy.

Recognising the quality & appeal of Okinawan produce, the island has now fully embraced its role as an International Hub and importing vegetables & food all over Singapore and Asia!

Okinawan fruits, vegetables, fish and meat are easily available all across Singapore – giving you a delicious new choice!

Food is such a way of life for Okinawans that much of its produce is still grown using traditional methods to preserve its quality – and it’s no surprise that many people here have very long life expectancies!

One thought on “Okinawa – The Cultural Hub of Japan!

  1. Hmm not exactly direct though, Jetstar stops over at Taipei and Osaka!
    and Ana and Japan stops over at Tokyo or other parts in Japan

    Either wait and see if Silkair will once again organized its chartered flights to Okinawa, which might also mean following on a tour package,
    or
    try go taipei and hongkong then go peach
