There are a lot of places where I would like to visit around the world. However, this time I chose one prefecture in Japan. The place which I would like to visit is Okinawa. I have never been to Okinawa but I know Okinawa has beautiful beaches. I have heard from my classmate that the distance between beach and school, hotel and house is very close so people in Okinawa can go to beach easily. Things that I want to do in Okinawa are just to go to the beach in the early morning and taking fresh air into my body. Now I am going to explain about information of Okinawa, famous places and foods in Okinawa.
I think many people who have never been to Okinawa do not know about details of Okinawa, so let me introduce about Okinawa. There are 1,443080 people in Okinawa. Tokyo has 13,648,731. Both Okinawa and Tokyo’s size of land are almost the same but population is different. If you go to Okinawa, you will feel wide and you can relax. I think most people already know that Okinawa is always hot even in winter. In winter Okinawa’s average temperature is around 17 degrees to 18 degrees. As I said, Okinawa is always hot so we can go to Okinawa easily and we do not worry about cold when you go there even in winter. If you go to Okinawa, you can relax. Now I am living in Hyogo and Hyogo is kind of bug city so there is less nature around me but in Okinawa we can see nature everywhere.
Okinawa has not only beautiful beach but also many famous places. For example, war memorials. Okinawa has deep history related to World War II and still now there is an US military base. The most popular place to go in Okinawa is International street I think. International street is a 1.6 km strip of road lined with souvenir shops, restaurants hotels and more. This street was reconstructed after World War II so this street has also some history. Most people think Okinawa is a small place but International street does not make people feel Okinawa is small place. The reason why this street makes people feel Okinawa is not a small place is there are a lot of shops, restaurants and hotel and also there are many tourists from all over the world. In addition, the place which I would like to go in Okinawa is aquarium. It is called Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. This aquarium was the best in the world until 2005 as a huge aquarium. After appeared Georgia aquarium, Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium became the second in the world.
Chinsuko, cookies, and Goya, a green vegetable are the famous food in Okinawa. I have eaten both as a gift and school lunch. Many people in Japan say Goya tastes bitter so they do not like to eat Goya. However, Goya contains a lot of nutrition so we have to eat Goya but do not eat too much. Goya has Vitamin C 2-4 times of the lemon and has calcium 14 times of the milk and it is good for stomach. Okinawa is far from every prefecture in Japan so many people have not tried Okinawa’s food. However, foods in Okinawa are good for health and taste good.
I wrote details about Okinawa, famous places and foods. Before I wrote this essay, I did not know much about Okinawa but now I know. After this semester, I have summer vacation and it is 2 months so I want to go to Okinawa and I want to see what I researched.
