  • Currency: the Yen.

Make the most of your stay at Kabira to discover the natural beauty and fascinating culture of the region.

In the far east of Asia, Japan is an archipelago with a thousand faces. Besides Tokyo and Osaka, the two giant cities that represent Japan’s economic power and its technology, there are a multitude of towns and villages that preserve their age-old traditions:

  • Ishigaki Island is 18 km from Club Med.
    It is the most densely populated of the Japanese islands, renowned for its coral reef. It has a number of houses built in the Okinawa tradition, protected by a hedge that serves as a barrier against storms and fire, and a Hinpun fence that acts as a charm against evil spirits. The roof has ornamental sculptures, part lion, part dog.
    Travel time: 25 minutes
  • Naha Island is a 40-minute flight from Club Med.
    Naha is the capital of Okinawa. The town centre, around the main street - Kokusai-dori - is modern and lively. You can visit the Gyokusendo cave in the south western part of the island, and the sites and memorials of the Battle of Okinawa.
