  • SEASIDE

Miyakojima (Okinawa Prefecture) is one of the most iconic of the Okinawa islands. While it has many other distractions and places of interest, one of the main draws for visitors to Miyako is its coastline, which features some of the most beautiful tropical beaches in all of Japan. Miyako is perfect for water sports enthusiasts, as well as families seeking some rest and recuperation.
If all the soaking up of the sunshine on white, sandy beaches, and swimming in crystal-clear cobalt blue waters isn’t enough for you, Miyako also has many golf courses, fabulous restaurants and a lively musical tradition.
The majority of the island is used for the cultivation of sugar cane, tobacco, and mangoes, and it is easy to get lost in the labyrinthine roads that run inland between the fields of these tall, local crops.
Wildlife thrives, and the sights and sounds of scuttling crabs, insomniac frogs and giant bats are fairly commonplace.
One of the 100 hidden towns in Japan chosen for this publication.
