Okinawa Island Guide 'a must' for newcomers

Date Posted: 2010-06-04

The 2010-11 issue of Okinawa Island Guide, a comprehensive guidebook of Okinawa featuring the most updated information on facts and tidbits about life and living on the island, has just been published and is now on news stands..

It ventures into depth on many topics to inspire longtime residents to explore all of the out-of-the-way spots of Okinawa, while serving newcomers as an introductory reference for a new life on island.

The contents range widely from basic facts about history and culture, arts and crafts, festivals, sightseeing, beaches, shopping, dining and lodging, to information on Okinawa’s unique diet that has attributed to its peoples’ longevity, as well as information on the dozens of outer islands in the prefecture, all of which are accompanied by pages of breathtaking large color photographs. New lively photographs of local happenings are added to this year’s issue.

The guidebook is available in a set of main and separate volumes. It serves as a comprehensive catalogue of franchise stores, resort hotels, restaurants, sporting events and other important information including days and hours of operation, as well as the information on tourist spots, night clubs, bars and live music clubs. Enriched as ever, this year’s issue also includes up-to-date information on the hottest spots on the island. A highlight is featuring live music houses where visitors can enjoy acknowledged local musicians’ performance with great dining.

The maps are another essential content of the book, that are detailed to show relationships between roadways, monorail route, tourist sites and businesses.

Large pullout maps of Naha, Okinawa City and Chatan are enclosed with the book. There’s also information on bus routes, monorail and the Okinawa Expressway.

As a sister publication of annual Island Guide, Okinawa Index publishes Island Life, a magazine filled with local tips and details for more enjoyable island living. The current issue on sale features various international foods and restaurants. A new issue is coming in July, featuring cafés, restaurants, and fashion centers in the popular Chatan area.

Island Guide is sold for $11.50 at AAFES shoppettes, PX/BX facilities on base, and USO Kadena. The guide is also available at Turtle Bookstore and other major bookstores off base.
