Riding Guide

Because all of islands are not so big, riding bike in Okinawa is not like a journey. However, it doesn't mean it is not place for cycling. Bicycle must be one of the best relaxed transport for a half day snoozing on the beach.
There are some cheap camping sits and also many (relatively) cheap gust houses(1500-2500 Yen for shared room without meal).
