Some of the most popular resort destinations like Taiwan, the northern Hawaii Islands, the California Peninsula, the Florida Peninsula, Miami, and the Bahamas are all located on the same latitude as Okinawa.
@About 1.3 million people live on the total land area of 2,200‚‹‡u, comprised of 60 odd islands large and small. The main four islands, however, are mainland Okinawa, where Naha Port is located, Miyako Island, Ishigaki Island, and Iriomote Island. Yonaguni Island, famously known for its "mysterious underwater ruins," is situated just by the border and is only 101km away from Taiwan. One could see the island shadow of Taiwan in the western horizon on a fine day.
@Average temperature is 22.4Ž, and annual mean precipitation is 2,000mm. It is the only prefecture in Japan that has a subtropical oceanic climate, and because of the warm current (Kuroshio) on the equator, winters in Okinawa are warm and the temperature rarely ever slips below 10Ž. In the summer Okinawa turns into a marine resort for mainly families and young adults who come to enjoy diving and fun on the beach, and in the winter it welcomes senior adults who fly in to escape the bitter weather in mainland Japan. Professional baseball teams and other sports teams hold their spring training in Okinawa also. All this makes Okinawa one of Japan's best resort destinations, with more than five million visitors each year and events throughout the year.
@This is Okinawa - the island where time freezes.
