Where to stay in Okinawa/Miyako/Ishigaki

Hi there,

I'm planning a trip with my father to Japan in May for two weeks. Though we're flying into Osaka May 1, I'm thinking that it would be nice to start our trip with a relaxing beach destination like Okinawa to get over jet lag and soak up the sun for a few days. I can get a flight straight from Osaka into Okinawa, Miyako or Ishigaki with ANA's Japan air pass. I'm wondering which is the best destination for us. I'd like a place that has beautiful beaches, some development but not too much, snorkeling and nice accommodations. Any island and/or specific hotel recommendations? We're not planning on a lot of sight-seeing once we're there, so I'd prefer not to have to rent a car. Thoughts?

Hello Laurie.

From April 29th to May 6th is a long holiday in Japan and all the hotel price and flight price will go up extreamly high. It is also a season everybody wants to travel so I'd recommend to book hotels beforehands.

Miyako or Ishigaki...

They are both beautiful islands and has many gorgeous beaches.

Check this website. They has many island information.
