    Okinawa Pref. Ishigakishi Nagura 967-1
    Japan’s southernmost theme park, it recreates the good old atmosphere of Yaeyama house-lined streets with a background of rich nature. Located on a hill overlooking Ishigaki Island’s scenic Nagura Bay, it is full of highlights such as red-tiled kominka (old houses) that are registered as National Tangible Cultural properties. There is also a tour of Nagura Anpal, which is registered under the Ramsar Convention, and you can observe rare animals and plants.

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
