Okinawa Tour Packages – During World War II, the island of Okinawa served as the setting for one of the bloodiest battles that took place anywhere in the Pacific. Despite the fact that Okinawa was well defended by Japanese forces, American forces made an attempt at an amphibious invasion of the island in April of 1945. After a subsequent conflict that lasted for three months, American forces eventually gained complete control of the island, but not before it claimed the lives of around 12,000 people and injured 36,000 more. On the Japanese side, almost one hundred thousand individuals lost their lives.

Okinawa City is located in Okinawa Ken (prefecture), Japan. It was once known as Koza. This new city, which may be found in the heart of Okinawa Island, was given its official status in the year 1974. After World War II, the city and its surrounding areas, which were rich in agriculture and forestry, became the location of the United States military post known as Kadena. This facility continued to function even after the conclusion of the American occupation of Japan. In addition to the Southeast Botanical Garden in Okinawa City, which is home to tropical plants, there is also an aquarium, an amusement park, a zoo, and the Moromi Folkcraft Museum. All of these attractions are located inside the city. Pop. (2005) 126,400; (2010) 130,249.

The Japanese territory of Okinawa may be found in the southwestern part of the Pacific Ocean. The Ryukyu Islands are an archipelago that is located between the East China Sea and the Philippine Sea. The prefecture is comprised of the southwestern two-thirds of the archipelago. Okinawa Island is the largest of the Ryukyu Islands; it stretches for a total of 463 square miles, has a length of 70 miles (112 kilometers), a breadth of 7 miles (11 kilometers), and a length of 70 miles (112 kilometers) (1,199 square km). Naha, the main city on the island, also serves as the seat of the prefecture.

Weather in Okinawa

The humid subtropical climate of Okinawa is characterized by protracted summers that are extremely hot and winters that are mild and rainy. Despite the length of the summer, each season has its own distinct charm, from whale watching in the winter to the vibrant hari festivals of the spring, the sagaribana flowers of the summer, and the cultural events of the fall, such as karate celebrations. The accompanying seasonal overviews and monthly recommendations will give you with suggestions for each month, as well as advise on what to carry and facts regarding the weather.

The weather is predominantly humid and subtropical. The majority of days are warm, although a pleasant break from the heat may be found in the early mornings, late nights, and winter months. During the course of winter, one may be compelled to wear apparel such as jackets and sweaters on a sporadic basis, particularly when gusty winds from the north are prevalent. Seaside activities may be enjoyed throughout a significant amount of the year, with average high temperatures ranging from approximately 21 degrees Celsius in February to roughly 30 degrees Celsius in August. In most years, the rainy season lasts from about the middle of the month of May through the end of the next month, June. It rains rather regularly for brief periods of time, although it only rarely showers throughout the entirety of a day. Typhoons are a distinct possibility from the months of June through September.

Spring
The month of March marks the opening of several of Okinawa’s most desirable resort beaches for the season, which marks the beginning of the peak beach season on the island. Even while it is still rather warm throughout the day, the evenings are noticeably cooler than the daytime temperatures. Attractive springtime activities may be found all across Okinawa, ranging from the exhilarating hari boat races to the blossoming of flowers on Ie Island and the appearance of fireflies on Kume Island. All of them can be found on Kume Island.

Summer
Scuba diving, snorkeling, parasailing, and kayaking are all possible throughout the year in Okinawa, although the summers are particularly conducive to these activities due to the island’s mild climate. Dives in the crystal-clear waters around islands such as Ishigaki and the Kerama Islands offer a fantastic opportunity to see a wide variety of stunning marine life, including manta rays and sea turtles. The events that take place throughout the summertime feature a traditional dance called the eisa as well as fireworks.

Every fall, Naha and other cities and towns around the Okinawan islands host a variety of festivals that celebrate Okinawan culture and include the island’s well-known tug-of-war competition. Spend some time educating yourself about the traditional skills of Okinawa, such as the Ryukyu glassmaking, the bingata dyeing, and the yachimun ceramics. It stays warm throughout the day, and the ocean and beaches retain their allure as strongly as they did before.
