    Okinawa Yonabarucho Yonabaru 3090-5

    西原方面から東海岸沿いに南部へ向かうと与那原の丘の上にそびえ建つように見えるのが聖クララ教会だ。建築文化的に文化財としても注目される建物。内部に入ると光あふれる空間で厳粛な気持ちになる。昔ながらの木のベンチも趣がある。

Okinawa Main Areas

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.
