Other Side of Japan - Kerama Islands in Okinawa

Tokashiki Island has two main beaches where on can easily spend the whole day

The unique color of the water gave rise to the term Kerama Blue

You can rent a canoe and spend a whole day out on the water

Zamami Island - another Kerama Island - offers a secluded  beach experience

Visiting the beach early in the morning may also reward you with an ocean to yourself
