The Okinawa roadmap
Our map focuses on the Main Island Okinawa and its capital Naha. The main Island can be split up in three parts, the Northern part, Central part and Southern part. The northern part is the least inhabited of the Island since it is mostly a National Park with Mount Yonaha at the center. The capital Naha lies on the most Southern part together with the other major towns Tomigusuku, Itoman, Nanjo Urasoe and Ginowan. The famous mister Miyagi Island is located on the east side of the central part of Okinawa. This is the place were the teacher of Karate Kid originally came from (from the Hollywood blockbuster).
