Okinawa has a climate that is totally different from mainland Japan. It has a good temperature climate throughout the year and it is always humid. Winter in Okinawa is not cold. The four days I had spent in Okinawa it was on December. It wasn't cold but it was always raining.
I had spent only four days in Okinawa
Shurijo Castle (首里城) is one of the place that you can't miss when you are traveling in Okinawa. The castle was the palace of the Ryukyu Kingdom. Located in Shuri, Okinawa. It was almost completely destroyed during Second World War and was rebuilt in 1992 on the same location based on historical records.
It is easy to access to Shurijo Castle. Just take the monorail to Shuri Station, then follow the street post to the Shurijo Castle Park.
Gyokusendo Cave is another awesome place to visit. It is more than 300,000 years old. It is a
giant limstone cave located in southern Okinawa and it is renown as the second largest cave in Japan. Its underground maze has over 5 km long and it takes about an hour to complete the track. It is very worth a visit to this beautiful cave. I've never been to a cave with 5km long!
Another visitor site, Pineapple Park, it is located nearby Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium
During this four days trip, the most memorable experience that I had it was in the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. I will definetely recommend it to my friends!
