A tropical atmosphere at Okinawa !


Okinawa is full of unique culture and history, which are quite different from that of the Japanese main land. A typical example is the colorful castle of Shurijo (a world heritage), which was constructed around the 14th century. Another example is Tsuboya-Yaki pottery (Traditonal Craft Products designated by the Government) decorated with Akae (or red pictured) and Gyomon (or fish patterns).
Many foreign visitors enjoy sight-seeing and food here all the year around.
