Recently, Okinawa receives about 10 million tourists every year, and officials expect the number to grow even further. This influx of visitors has spawned a boom in developing resorts, hotels, and other tourist facilities throughout the prefecture. Almost all major world-wide resort hotels have facilities on Okinawa.
They offer spas, beaches with every imaginable marine leisure activity, and superior dining facilities. Hotels and resorts are also going up on smaller islands as operators compete, trying always to find new destinations to offer to increasing numbers of vacationers who want to have their share of paradise.
