If you were a fan of the Karate Kid starring Ralph Macchio and Noriyuki “Pat” Morita, well, then you’re awarded the gold star. Although the character Mr. Miyagi comes from Okinawa the majority of the movie was created in Hawaii.
In my opinion, Okinawa is famous for two things – Okinawa time as well as its Okinawa diet. The traditional food there is so full of delicious nutrients and vitamins, that people from Okinawa are considered to have the longest lives around the globe. There are so many beautiful places to visit in Okinawa. You can get the “Okinawa tourism information online” (also known as “沖縄観光情報オンライン” in the Japanese Language)with just a click.

The best way to travel in Okinawa is by renting a car. Public vehicles will take more time to travel from one place to another and you can stop at beautiful destinations in between your travel if you have the convenience of a personal rented vehicle.
Okinawa is also famous for many other reasons, including beautiful beaches, a mixture of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean cultures in addition to their own distinct culture. Before becoming part of Japan, Okinawa was known as the Ryukyu Kingdom and had its distinct culture, language, and customs.
If you are planning to visit Japan, do not miss the chance to see the beauty of the untouched nature at Okinawa.
