Travel Tips

Absolutely! These beautiful Japanese islands are amazing to explore. Here are some tips for your trip to Naha, Ishigaki, and Miyakojima:

Best Time to Visit:
June to October are generally considered the best months to visit these islands as the weather is warmer and sunnier, however there can sometimes be typhoons; May and early June are also popular for their less crowded and cooler conditions. Remember, the rainy season is typically from end of May to June while Typhoon season is around August to October.

Route and Accessibility:
Naha is easily accessible by air through the Naha Airport, which has direct flights from major Japanese and some international cities. Both Miyakojima and Ishigaki can also be reached by domestic flights from Naha or Tokyo.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
These islands are at sea level so altitude sickness is not a concern.

Accommodation and Booking:
Booking accommodations in advance is advised, especially during peak tourist seasons. All the islands offer a variety of accommodations from luxury beach resorts to budget guesthouses.

Clothing and Essentials:
Light, breathable clothing is recommended for the tropical climate. Don't forget your swimwear and plenty of sun protection! A good quality camera is also a must for the beautiful landscapes.

Health and Safety:
Stay hydrated and apply sunblock regularly. Be careful when swimming or snorkeling, especially with the presence of strong currents in certain areas.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Japanese culture values respect. Follow local customs and regulations, especially when visiting places of cultural significance. Speaking softly and dressing appropriately in places of worship and sacred sites is appreciated.
