Default Sightseeing in Okinawa?



I am traveling with my 69 year old father.

Would love to hear experiences with sightseeing via taxi or Limo.
We will be in Okinawa June 25 from 7 am until 6 pm.

Many Thanks.

AVA:

I would suggest going to the southern area of Okinawa island. This is the most historic area. A tour of Shurijo (sp) castle and the historic areas around it will give you a great insight into the history of Okinawa and some beautiful architecture.

My next choice would be the fishing villages along some of the gorgeous beaches. I was amazed that there were as many beaches on the islands as there were. Okinawa is not just one island but many. I actually can't remember the name of the main island but Shruijo castle is located on the main island of Okinawa Island, where most ships dock.

Take care,
Mike
