Five Select Okinawa Cottages Popular on Social Media to Share with Friends

If you are traveling to Okinawa with your family or close friends, try renting a cottage! They have kitchens so are appropriate for longer stays. Here are five facilities popular on social media sites.

1. Tokashiki Guest House

These are cottages on Tokashiki, the largest of the Kerama Islands, which are located about 30km to the west of Naha. The surrounding ocean is described as "Kerama blue" and is among the most beautiful in the world. Marine sports such as diving are popular in the summer, and whale watching is popular in the winter.
The cottages are on a mountain overlooking the ocean. They are away from the village, so you can feel as if you have the surrounding nature all to yourself. There are two cottages, both of which have bedding for up to six people. There are free shuttle services to the port and beach.
