Discover Okinawa Main Island

Okinawa Main Island

Okinawa Main Island was the center of the former Ryukyu Kingdom. Okinawa Main Island is by far the largest and most populated island in Okinawa Prefecture and the regional transportation hub. The prefectural capital Naha and most of the US military bases are located on Okinawa Honto.

While much of the central part of Okinawa Honto is urbanized, the southern tip of the island is less densely populated, and the northernmost Yambaru area remains mainly covered by forested hills and small fishing and farming villages.
