A City of Ancient Ruins, Pristine Beaches & Natural Beauty


rcBreakText rcBreakWhiteText

From the 14th to the 16th centuries, Okinawa was known as the Ryukyu Kingdom. Traces of that era remain in the form of nine World Heritage Sites scattered across Okinawa including Sefa-utaki, where a triangle-shaped tunnel formed by two rocks leads to the city’s most sacred altar. As one of Japan’s most popular holiday destinations, Okinawa appeals with more than history and culture. Beaches offer snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing; early in the year visitors can catch the cherry blossoms in bloom; the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium features four levels of marine life; and the preserved Yanbaru forest is perfect for trekking or kayaking. The Ritz-Carlton, Okinawa is conveniently located near US Marine Corps camps Hansen, Foster and Schwab, and the hotel is pleased to welcome servicemen and women and their families.
