Hi Lars and Ralfs.

December in Okinawa is about 18 degrees C.......kinda cold to go to the beach, but if you are from Norway maybe its no problem!!!

Famous places in Okinawa are Shuri Castle, Nakijin Castle, Katsuren Castle, Nakagusuku Castle. They are all World Heritage Sites if you like this.......all have nice views of the island. I personally like Nakijin Castle the best.

You could also do a little day trip and catch a ferry to one of the outer islands in Kerama (Aka Jima, Tokashiki Jima, Zamami Jima, etc)

and thanks a lot for your response. Temperatures around 18 are surely no problem for us
A quick question - is Okinawa more of a car or bicycle country? In case it is good for bicycles are they easy to rent in Naha?
Thanks a lot,
Ralfs and Lars

Hi Lars and Ralfs, when are you in Okinawa ? I am flying in on Wednesday (the 28th of November) and leaving on December 15th. Maybe we can meet up, and do some cycling.

we will be there between 25. and 31.12, so we arrive 10 days after you have departed. We'd appreciate if you had time to drop a line in this forum regarding availability of bike rentals in Naha and how the over all biking situation is in Okinawa. Thanks and have a great trip!
