JAL Okinawa Island Pass

Japan Transocean Air (JTA), a subsidiary of the JAL Group, has introduced an easy way for tourists to explore the beautiful islands of Okinawa. The Okinawa Island Pass allows for travel on five inter-island routes for a flat fare per sector (minimum two sectors required). For more information on this pass, please click here:

Okinawa is the southern group of islands located between Japan's main islands and Taiwan. This is a hip destination with a tropical climate, and a fusion of Japanese and Chinese influences, stemming from the Ryukyu Civilization, helps to create its unique flare. The islands boast World Heritage Sites originally from the 15th century, including the Ryukyu Imperial residence. They also welcome you with colorful corals, Manta rays, deep sea ruins and sea turtles.
For people who might be interested in longevity, the region is also home to the largest population of centenarians in the world. The magic is simple; learn to live in the Okinawan way. Enjoy the simple life, eat from the earth, and be free from time limits and pressures.
