FD Explore Okinawa by car


| May 15, 2020

Okinawa Island is the largest of the Okinawa Island group, and best experienced by hiring a car and exploring at your leisure. The capital, Naha, is home to many of the island's hotels and cultural attractions, including the Okinawa Prefectural Museum. The Peace Memorial Park in the southern tip of the island commemorates the Battle of Okinawa, and has displays on the lead up to the battle, the battle itself and the subsequent reconstruction of Okinawa. To discover some of the natural beauty of the island, visit the Motobu Peninsula on the east coast, home to a number of beaches, or Hiji Waterfall further north and set in the forests of the Yambaru region.
