Okinawa is a tropical island on the south of Japan. It definitely has it's charm and it's completely different from the other cities that I have visited in Japan (i.e. Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka). It was one of my favorite trips this year, because we rented a cute compact Japanese car and went exploring the island for four days. This gave us the flexibility to see different ares of Okinawa at our own pace (you need a international driver license). Four days was plenty of time for ship wreck diving, eating copious amount of food, and sight seeing. If you're looking to plan a trip to Okinawa, here's my top five favorite things to do or eat!
