I brought my boy on a trip to Okinawa two years back during the November school holidays.

It was rainy towards the end of the year, and even the swimming pool was closed at that time. We enjoyed the beef burger and the Churaumi Aquarium, which is the best in the whole of Japan. The massive tank is also one of largest in the world.

We had some fun trying out the water sports like banana boat and going on the jet ski is the first time for him. Obviously, he had lots of fun. It was just a short trip and thus, we didn't have time to visit the nearby islands, and in any case, the weather was not the best to go for any island visit.

And I would like to add on some information which I had taken from another website, which lists the Top 50 Things To Do in Okinawa.

I will only mention a few of them -

The text below is taken from another website, and you will find the link after the end of the text.

Okinawa, one of the most popular beach resorts in the whole of Japan. Its emerald blue seas and white sand beaches attract people from all over the country. Once the Ryukyu Kingdom, Okinawa has a unique culture and history that differs from the mainland. Here in this article we are going to introduce 50 great things to do in Okinawa.

Okinawa can be largely divided up into for regions: the southern region (with Naha City, etc.) the central region, the northern region and the isolated islands. Each of the titles of the items in the list contains the region, so you can refer to these when planning your sightseeing route.

In Michelin’s “Green Guide Japan,” Ishigaki Island has been awarded to stars, and Kabira Bay in Ishigaki Island has been awarded 3 stars, the top rank. As well as the beautiful clear seas, on the beaches you can see star-shaped sand, known as “hoshizuna.” The beef from Ishigaki Island is also famous. 

A spectacular example of Okinawa’s beautiful scenery. The sight of the sea and blue skies from the cape is breathtaking. If it is your first time in Okinawa, this is one place we recommend you visit. If you look carefully into the waters, you can see the beautiful coral reefs. The rock shaped like an elephant’s trunk is also famous.

Please refer to the website above for more attractions on Okinawa.
