Okinawa (prefecture) Vacation Packages

Venture to Japan’s southernmost prefecture and discover an archipelago of semi-tropical islands where blue-green waters, unspoiled nature and ancient culture await.

Set apart from the rest of Japan both geographically and culturally, Okinawa Prefecture consists of 160 islands where nature abounds and laid-back, tropical ambiance prevails. Discover pristine beaches and excellent diving, as well as historic artifacts from World War II battles, unique museums and a deep-rooted culture.

Until its 1868 annexation to Japan, the Okinawa archipelago was independent, known as Ryukyu Kingdom. Here, food, crafts, architecture and languages evolved separately and have left a long-standing legacy. Learn about this fascinating culture at Ryukyu Mura, a theme park where you can see traditional performances, working craftsmen and unique architectural styles.

Okinawa Island, the largest of the prefecture’s 40 inhabited islands, has the capital city of Naha, the gateway to the rest of the coral-fringed islands. The city’s highlight is the 14th-century Shurijo Castle. Learn more about ancient Ryukyu culture at the Okinawa Prefectural Museum & Art Museum. Visit pottery shops in the Tsuboya area. Shop, eat and interact with locals along International Street. Tour the Peace Memorial Museum on the southern part of the island for artifacts and testimonials related to Okinawa’s World War II battles.

Appreciate nature on Okinawa’s other islands. Embark on a whale-watching cruise off Zamami Island. In summer, lounge on perfect white-sand beaches including Katenohama Beach on Kumejima Island.

Emerald Beach is part of the Okinawa Ocean Expo Park. Witness the earliest blossoming of Japan’s famous pink cherry blossoms or attend one of the many colorful flower festivals held throughout the islands. You can even explore a primitive forest pocketed with limestone caves in the Valley of Gangala. 

Dive in the healthy coral reefs on islands such as the far south Iriomote. If you don’t dive or snorkel, view marine creatures at Churaumi Aquarium and at the underwater observatory tower in Busena Marine Park

Okinawa is served by Naha’s international airport. Domestic flights and ferries shuttle visitors to other islands. Set off on an island-hopping adventure in this alluring tropical setting.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Okinawa?

A: Rent a car and you'll feel like a local, not a tourist. Jump into the driver's seat and explore everything that Naha and Nago have to offer, from star attractions to off-the-beaten-path treasures. Your own set of wheels will also make things a lot easier if your plan is to journey around the region of Okinawa or farther afield. Cheap Car Hire in Okinawa? We're here to help.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Okinawa?

  • Naha (OKA): 940 international flights per month.
  • Ishigaki (ISG-Painushima): 27 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Okinawa?

A: Pack your suitcase and enjoy a stay at one of the fine hotels. They're one of the most frequently booked accommodation. Private holiday homes, apartments and guest houses are also easy to find in Okinawa.

Q: What does an Okinawa holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Car and flight. Flight and hotel. Hotel and car. Hotel, car and flight. You get the drift. You can lock in as little or as much as you want, all in one place. To get as much as you can out of your Okinawa holiday, browse our experiences and activities as well.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Okinawa?

A: Save money and hassle by bundling your bookings with us. From Flights to Experiences, Expedia will help you pull together your exciting Okinawa escape. The more you organise now, the more you save. You'll also have less to be worried about when you finally get to your destination.

Q: What are the best things to do in Okinawa?

A: Daichi Makishi Kōsetsu Ichiba and Kinjo Dam are high on the must-see lists of holiday makers in Naha. If this is where you'll be spending the majority of your trip, also try to squeeze in Palette Kumoji. No stay here would be complete without it.
