What's hot?

Be aware of local holidays

obon

If you plan on visiting Okinawa around Obon or New Year’s, it’s advisable to confirm in advance the hours of operation for the places you want to see, since unlike many tourist-oriented businesses, most local facilities close at these times of year. Others might instead shut down during Obon and New Year’s according to the lunar calendar, a custom especially prevalent among older Okinawans.

 

・Obon according to the lunar calendar: August 19-21, 2013
・New Year’s according to the lunar calendar: January 31, 2014
