Japan is one of my favorite destinations, though I never really pictured it as a beach destination. Without really knowing much about Okinawa, I decided to take a low-cost flight for a few days and check out a new part of Japan I have not been to before.
Boy, was I in for a surprise. Gorgeous nature, beautiful pristine beaches with white sand and clear waters, sunny weather, friendly locals, and the Japanese charm. What more can you ask for. I scooter-ed my way through the Ishigaki island, took a ferry to some of the smaller neighboring islands, and in a course of a weekend saw magical wonders. The perfect quick getaway from Hong Kong. I hope to make it back some day soon to explore more of the other Okinawa islands.
