Join me in discovering the Okinawa prefecture, the southernmost subtropical islands of Japan!
ANA’s flight NH1731 is usually operated by A20N/73H a/c but I chose to fly my favorite narrowbody - the A321. It takes off from Osaka Kansai (KIX/RJBB) and lands nearly 2 hours later in Naha Airport (OKA/ROAH).
Hope you enjoy the photos!

× Airborne and slightly offtrack due to strong crosswind ×
× Banking right over the city of Osaka ×
× Seems to be a busy, misty morning ×
× Clearly the FO is overwhelmed by the view - airport in sight also ×
× Soon after you will see Kyushu island’s mountains and start reaching exotic land ×
× Reeeeally exotic! ×
× Good inspiration for island hopping in a Cessna ×
× Island of Naha right ahead, flaps lowered to 1 for speed reduction ×
