Okinawa, Japan | Sep 27 2012 | (23:06:46 - EDT)
“IS JAPAN COOL? OKINAWA” by ANA Group, Japan's largest Airline, showcases 20 attractions of Okinawa, a tropical resort island with a unique history and tradition. The website visitors can cast votes to rank their favorite attractions.
Popular spots that make Okinawa an incredible place to vacation are the pristine resort beaches, the historic and beautiful Shuri Castle, and a must stop for anyone experiencing Okinawa, the Churaumi Aquarium.
Visitors are attracted to the beauty of the eternally blue ocean around Okinawa nicknamed "Churaumi" in Ryukyu accent meaning "beautiful pure ocean". In Okinawa, time passes much slower than any other place in Japan and its population is much smaller than that of Hawaii. Then, the hidden resort areas in Okinawa feature both relaxation and marine leisure. ANA aims to attract more visitors to Japan from overseas by highlighting such a well-kept-secret place
