Japan is one of my most cherished countries that I have been to, and while I haven’t escaped to the mainland yet and seen sights of Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hiroshima, I have found a second home three hours south on the island of Okinawa. It’s known as the Hawai’i of Japan and I couldn’t agree more. 

Believe it or not, in Okinawa, you can find white sand beaches, mouthwatering ramen, and epic adventures all around the island that will have you wondering how you had never heard of the place. I have visited Okinawa twice now and each visit has offered a different dynamic and even more sites to uncover!
