    Wow. Those are so beautiful. I can actually visualize myself there.

    Stunning pictures! I wonder if tourist might be hesitant to visit though
    due to the meltdown. I for one would probably select another locale until
    we are sure that there is no risk of illness.

    My Dad was stationed at Okinawa in WWII. Even though he was there in war time, he use to talk about how beautiful it was. Now I know why!

    I had no idea Japan looked like that either. Wow! I’m putting it on my list of places to go.

    I spent my childhood on Okinawa (my mom is from Okinawa) Most americans have on idea. The beaches are amazing especially on the smaller islands.

    Crissy, thank you for featuring our images!
    FYI, the Japanese archipelago is 3500 km (2175 miles) long, consisting of 6852 islands so Japan has many different types of beaches with different types of climate.

    Mmm, I’d like to go NOW please!

    That is one darn gorgeous picture. I once lived on Okinawa for six years while teaching. I remember taking dozens of trips out to the outer islands surrounding Okinawa and it was this beautiful…thanks for the walk down memory lane.
