    Is Okinawa JAPAN?
    Countries are overall fairly large places and a difference of cultures is to be expected wherever you go. The same can be said for Okinawa, a chain of islands stretching 1000km long Southwest of Japan’s main island. Despite initially having it’s own culture and civilization present, Okinawa was officially annexed by Japan in 1868 during the Meiji restoration and has been a part of Japan ever since.

We emplore you to try to connect with Okinwan culture as much as you can during your trip. Okinawans are especially friendly and willing to help any and everyone.
