Miyako Islands

Just 45 minutes by air from Okinawa Honto, the group of eight Miyako Islands are a paradise for divers and snorkellers. With 400km of water separating the Miyako Islands from Okinawa Honto, the islands boast unique wildlife, and are among the few islands of Okinawa not inhabited by the poisonous habu snake.

This separation has also fostered a unique culture, and the Miyako Islands celebrate a number of festivals unlike others in Japan or on the other Okinawan islands. Into Japan is delighted to include a visit to the Miyako Islands as part of your tailor made tour to Japan.
