Twenty reasons to visit Okinawa | The Border Mail

Okinawa comprises more than 160 islands, 49 of them inhabited, stretching 1000 kilometres south-west from Kyushu to Taiwan. Twenty-five of the islands are accessible by plane or ferry: the 14 Kerama islands (which include Okinawa Island), the four Miyako islands and, only 120 kilometres from Taiwan, the seven Yaeyama islands (such as the jungle-clad Iriomote Island; Ishigaki Island, famous for its beef; and Taketomi Island, which has well-preserved Okinawan villages). JAL's Okinawa Island Pass has flights between five of the main islands for just $93 a sector. okinawastory.jp/en
