Anyone into touring of Okinawa?

Intending to venture in Nov, to avoid the cold winter in other parts of Japan.


If dont want to self-drive in Okinawa, is it possible to travel ard by public trains?

Also, what's the usual flight route from Singapore to Okinawa?

many thanks

For my business trips in the past, I used to take SIN-Osaka, Kansai Airport.
Then take a domestic ANA flight to Okinawa.

70% proof awar mori ..... must try.
Super strong version of Okinawan sake.

This island is nice.

Hokk is too cold, I 'hate' snow, I 'hate' driving on freezing rain.

 

Its safe, medical is excellent, children and elderly no worries.

At the basement of liang court closest to the toilet, there is an Okinawan restaurant. Actually quite similar to Chinese food in a way and they seem to like pork a lot. They have a flavored rice dumpling. Sedap. As is their braised fatty pork.

But note their green tea is damn expensive at $4 a cup.

That's nice, direct flight. Enjoy yourselves & do share narrations & pictures of your trip.
My fav place there was Churaumi Aquarium.
