Miyako Island is located about 300 kilometers southwest of the main island of Okinawa. It has picturesque scenery such as the cape of Higashi-hennazaki and the Ikema Ohashi Bridge and its contrast of the cobalt blue seas and the white sandy beaches is beautiful. Also, in the northern district of Miyako Island is “Yabiji”, which is regarded as Japan’s largest coral reef community, and is popular as a diving and a snorkeling spot.

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.
