These islands, jewels spread across a deep blue sea.
Once the Ryukyu Kingdom,
today home to a proud, unique and beautiful culture.
A fascinating, often turbulent history.
Jungled hills, mangrove-lined inlets, sandy beaches
and rocky islets above the coral-filled crystalline waters.
It all awaits: often unchanged, always alive: Okinawa.
