The main island of Okinawa is a popular starting point for tourists wanting to explore this sub-tropical part of Japan. The city of Naha boasts an ancient castle, a vibrant shopping street, and many other attractions that make it well worth a visit.
Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium
Located on the coast of Motobu Peninsula, the aquarium was rebuilt in 2002 and is now home to 740 different species of underwater life. It takes about 2 hours by bus from Naha.
The limestone cave "Gyokusendo" is a must-see in "Okinawa World" in Nanjo City in the southern part of the main Island of Okinawa. In March 1967, the Ehime University Academic Research Team conducted a survey and revealed the whole picture. The total length of the entire cave, which was formed about 300,000 years ago, is about 5,000 meters, and now 890 meters is open to the public.
'Sefa-utaki' was the most sacred place in the Ryukyu Kingdom. Leaders of the native faith were all women, and access to the site was strictly off-limits to men, with the exception of male members of the royal family. 'Sefa-utaki' contains dense forests and rugged rock formations, and is a place where nature itself is worshipped as divine.
