Visiting Okinawa – A City Guide
The Japanese island of Okinawa is known for its beaches, mountains and prime scuba diving spots in the East China Sea. The bustling capital city, Naha, attracts shoppers, diners and culture lovers. Smaller central villages like Onna are set amid spectacular coastal scenery.

Okinawa: city layout and top attractions
Okinawa is the main island in a larger chain of the same name. It lies more than 1,500 km south of Tokyo. Its subtropical climate, clear waters and picturesque coastal mountains make it a popular Japanese holiday destination. Near the south of the island, Naha has shops, bars and restaurants along its central thoroughfare, Kokusai Dori.

The island’s rich history is preserved at nearby attractions like Shurijo Castle and Okinawa Prefectural Museum & Art Museum. There are Okinawa hotels along the scenic west coast, where Onna serves as the gateway to a marine park. You can watch the sunset over the East China Sea from Cape Maeda and Cape Manza, a dramatic rock formation with hiking trails and tidal pools.

The concierge recommends…

  • Browsing the pottery shops on Naha’s Yachimun Street.
  • Exploring the famous blue cave while swimming, diving or snorkelling at Cape Maeda.
  • Seeing whale sharks and manta rays at Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, one of the world’s biggest marine life centres, less than an hour’s drive from Onna.

Eating Out in Okinawa
Okinawa has its own distinctive cuisine, blending dishes from the Japanese mainland with Chinese and American influences. Stir-fry and pork belly are served all over the island. Okinawans often add koregusu, a spicy condiment of hot peppers, and awamori, a local liquor distilled from Thai rice.

Some Naha hotels are known for their restaurants. The city’s main street, Kokusai Dori, is lined with noodle shops and izakayas, taverns with extensive menus of small dishes. At nearby Makishi Public Market, you can pick out fresh fish from one of the stalls and have it fried, grilled or cut into sashimi at a restaurant upstairs. In and around Onna village, you’ll find upscale seafood restaurants with views over the East China Sea. The beachfront has plenty of casual dining options, including American-style burger bars and steakhouses. On hot days, you may see long lines forming at local sweet parlours for shaved ice.

The chef recommends...

  • Champuru: Okinawa’s native stir-fry of meat and vegetables, frequently prepared using SPAM and goya, or bitter melon.
  • Daito soba: A local variation of the mainland Japanese recipe, with thicker noodles and a saltier broth.
  • Rafute: Pork belly braised with black sugar and awamori.

Shopping in Okinawa
Okinawa’s shopping mirrors mainstream Japanese trends, especially in the upscale malls and boutiques of the capital. But the island also has its own native craft shops, many specialising in local glassware, lacquerware and pottery, known as yachimun. Naha’s Tsuboya neighbourhood is known for its ceramic artisans and workshops. It has colourful pottery stores along Yachimun Street.

You can shop for designer fashions in the city’s trendy Shintoshin district, which has high-end malls at Naha Main Place and Omoromachi Station. Smaller island villages like Onna have local retail centres around their main stations. Near Onna Beach, you’ll find dive and surfwear shops.

Things to buy in Okinawa

  • Yachimun: Hand-crafted pottery products make great gifts and souvenirs.
  • Textiles: Okinawa is famous for its colourful fabrics, dyed with pigments from native subtropical plants and hand painted by local experts.
  • Jewellery: Island designers still make silver hairpins, known as jiifaa, and other traditional accessories dating back to Okinawa’s time as the main royal island of the Ryukyu Kingdom.

Culture & Nightlife in Okinawa
Okinawan art and culture is rooted in the history of the Ryukyu Kingdom. Its traditions are preserved at the reconstructed Shurijo Castle, where festivals and rituals celebrate Ryukyu music and dance. Near Onna, Yamada Castle and the Nakadomari Ruins are part of the Kunigami hōsei kaidō, a historic trail of Ryukyu Kingdom sites along the west coast.

On Sundays, Naha’s Kokusai Dori is closed to traffic for parades and street performances. After dark, the street becomes the hub of Naha nightlife, with many busy bars staying open until dawn. The Shintoshin district has more upscale spots.

Even smaller island villages like Onna have bar scenes. Here, beachfront and clifftop venues provide live music and scenic backdrops for sunset cocktails.

Okinawa museums

  • Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum: This sprawling complex has exhibits on Okinawa history and geography, plus artworks from the Ryukyu Kingdom.
  • Onna Village Museum: Here, dioramas and videos on local culture show how the village and region have evolved.
  • Akara/Bokunen Art Museum: Near Onna, this is a shopping complex joined to a gallery of vivid landscape prints by Okinawa’s famous woodblock artist, Naka Bokunen.

Leisure in Okinawa
Okinawa is known for clear waters and soft, sandy beaches. Naha has its own city beach at Naminoue. It’s also a jumping-off point for day trips to nearby islets like Gahi Jima and Agenashiku Jima.

The west coast attracts sunbathers to sheltered spots like Manza Beach. The waters off Cape Maeda are especially good for snorkelling and diving. It’s an easy hike up Mount Onna for panoramic views over the village and shoreline.

Okinawa day trips

  • Kenmin No Mori: This forest park has sports facilities, playgrounds and barbecue areas. You can book a camping spot and stay the night.
  • Kudaka Island: A short trip from Naha brings you to this island where old Okinawa survives in quaint, friendly villages.
  • Sea kayaking: Various companies offer guided kayak tours along the west coast. You’ll see sheer cliffs, sea caves and lush tropical foliage.

Latest Okinawa Hotel Reviews


Very friendly staff
By Dory
Unfortunately it was winter when I stayed so I could not fully enjoy the beach facilities and the swimming pool. The rooms are spacious and the views are magnificent. Slightly dated furniture but the [More] room is nonetheless equipped with everything required. Good facilities around and very helpful and friendly (English speaking) staff. Due to some Chinese tourists it could be quite noisy in the late evenings or early mornings. The Japanese restaurant in the basement is also highly recommended. [Less]

Excellent stay, well recommended!
By Nomnom77
From the smooth check-in experience to a thoughtful guest service experience, staffs are all very kind and generous. Room was spacious and gorgeous! Cleanliness 100% on point. We had dinner at [More] Karin, the Chinese restaurant, the order buffet was delicious and the view from our seats included the famous Manza Cape. Overall, the hotel is in great location, well maintained, great staffs, and good food. What's there more to ask for? [Less]
Great hotel and great staff
By Rob MAc
One of the best hotels that we stayed in during our 3 weeks in Japan. The property was great and the staff were more than accommodating for our needs. The concierge that greeted us (Mrs. Goto) [More] was perfect. She had listed out all of the local areas and best ways to get there for us. Mrs Goto even gave us information on places in Tokyo that we couldn't find when we were in Tokyo 2 weeks before. With her help, we were able to find the places in Tokyo when we returned before flying out. [Less]
