What is the Okinawa Island Guide?
The Okinawa Island Guide is a yearly publication intended for foreigners who want to know more about Okinawa. It contains general information about the island's culture, traditions, music, events, food. Information about the outer islands and ferry schedules are also found within.

The Mini-Book
A mini-book, bundled with the guide, includes a comprehensive catalogue of shops, restaurants, night clubs and maps for all these locations. The mini-book's small form factor makes it perfect for storing in a bag or pocket as a quick reference while travelling the island.

One Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
The guide also makes a perfect gift for friends and family back at home since it's packed with beautiful full-page color photos that will make them feel as if they're here on the island. Share the island's culture with those that may never be able to see it.
