Do you know anything about Okinawa other than is position in WWII? I didn't either. I was fortunate enough to go there last week for a little business/vacation and was impressed. Good peeps, good food and amazing beaches. I'd go back.

Here's a map. It's a biggun. Most of these pictures are from Naha City, the capital, and all points north. Naha is an industrial port city that's home to around 1 million people. The others were taken on Zamami Island. A small and sparsely populated island about two hours southwest from Naha.

And finally a little Zamami Island







Apparently, the Japanese don't like beautiful beaches

























The local poison





And back to 20,000,000+





Thanks for staying until the end.

This is a great thread, a mind blower! I didn't know whale sharks could be held in captivity, do you know how big those can get? BIG! I guess the japanese could find a way to keep aliens in captivity!:)

Thanks, everyone.

MNiemann, the weather was perfect and it was a Saturday. I'm not sure why the beaches were so empty. I guess it's still off-season.

Chocho, I think Karate Kid 2 was filmed here. After all, Okinawa is the official home of the martial art.
