Okinawa Island Guide a must for newcomers

Date Posted: 2009-04-10

It’s brand new, completely updated with the very latest facts, figures and tidbits about life and living on Okinawa. The 2009 edition of Okinawa Island Guide is now on newsstands and in bookstores across the island.

Published annually by Okinawa Index, it ventures into depth on many topics to inspire longtime residents to explore all of the out-of-the-way spots of Okinawa, while it serves newcomers perfectly as a handy reference for their new life on island.
Contents range 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. There’s also valuable information on the dozens of outer islands in the prefecture, all of which are accompanied by pages of large color photographs. This year’s edition also includes a restaurant guide section.

The guidebook is available in a set of main and separate volumes,
with the main guidebook in large magazine format, while the other contains not only general information, but 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.

The maps are another essential content of the book, fully 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.

Okinawa Island Guide is available for $13.50 at AAFES PX/BX facilities at Camps Hansen, Schwab, Courtney and Foster, at the Kadena BX, and at Shoppettes on Kadena Air Base and Camps Kinser, Shields, Lester, Futenma and Courtney. The Guide is also available at all USO Centers, and at Turtle Bookstore and other major bookstores off base.
