  • I think of no apart from other tourism resources. Scenic area is not too organized, thought it difficult to understand. However, only the season best is still. Enjoy snorkeling, diving, swimming, etc. 10.

  • You do not need to bring a lot of cash to Daito Island of Yonaguni family has a 24-hour ATM in the store was so. In the restaurant was able to use credit cards. Went to see a scarlet cherry blossom early in January was most buds. Check out the people there are flowers that bloom during us visit at this time of the season? It was beautiful

  • I want to go to the StumbleUpon called beautiful Orient Beach, visit. Kume Island Okinawa island's first trip. Sugar cane fields and the sea is just this-I also was not peaceful and tranquil island. Would be cherry in full bloom in mid-January. The desire of good weather, very clean!
