OkinawaTraveler Editor

Opportunities to listen to the words SDGs and sustainable / sustainability on a daily basis have become commonplace. How do you actually do it yourself? When thinking about such things, there are different purposes and targets, but it is a sustainable and SDGs approach to be connected to such a way that "it will be for me, my important people, and my important place." We think that.

For places (islands) that we want to keep carefully, we will focus on the activities of companies and facilities that engage in sustainable initiatives so that everyone who enjoys sightseeing in Okinawa can also participate together!
