Okinawa tourist spots reopen as government lifts State of Emergency

Many favorite points of interest on Okinawa are reopening their doors to visitors.

Among them Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, Shurijo Castle Park, Okinawa Zoo & Museum, and Nakagusuku Castle Ruins have reopened. The move comes as the Government of Japan lifted restrictions from the ongoing State of Emergency on October 1.

COVID-19 is still a concern and most attractions are requiring visitors to take preventive measures such as social distancing and sanitizing hands. Hours of operation are also modified. 

Public beaches such as Emerald Beach, Araha Beach, and Gorilla Chop are now also open again to beachgoers.
