Whether your interest is in history, culture, nature, peace studies, or industry, Okinawa offers a variety of potential subjects optimal for educational travel. Here, you can put together travel plans that incorporate experiences impossible to have anywhere else around Japan.
Okinawa has an abundance of attractions, allowing for a variety of plans. Pick your destinations based on how long your trip will be.
We recommend limiting the trip to the main island. Private residences that take in lodgers on educational travel for homestays are available throughout the prefecture, allowing one to choose based on proximity to the places you want to visit.
This program focuses on getting to know what makes Okinawa special firsthand, including a nature experience at the Keramashoto National Park and a homestay at a village where traditional culture remains vibrant. The plan offers abundant other opportunities for learning, including a peace studies program, a field trip to Churaumi Aquarium, and an enjoyable stroll around the city.
