I am traveling to Japan next month.

Starting out and booked for three nights in Tokyo, then a night in Hakone, and then a few nights in Kyoto.

Right now, I am torn if I should go to Shirahama or Okinawa for 2 nights.

I believe it's about $250 for the round trip with the Airpass if I go to Okinawa. I would be pretty upset if I got there and it rained the whole time.

With Shirahama Beach, I don't know how cold it's going to be around June 10th, or if I will have the same issues with rain. But, at least I would not have the $250 airfare to worry about.

Opinions? Are there any other beaches on the main island that are nice in early to mid June?

I am down to two places:

- Sun Marina Hotel in Okinawa

- Prince Hotel Shirahama

Either way, I want to be right on the beach.

I picked a hotel in Shimoda. I figured for the two nights, it will be less than one way airfare for one person to Okinawa. Beach, and no flying, plus a lot cheaper to buy stuff around Japan.

Hopefully Shimoda is decent enough to swim around June 10th.
