Welcome to Watanabe Island - The resort paradise of Katamegi. In this short update, i will show the small island of Watanabe from the perspective of a travel journalist - explaining such things as accomodation, activities, routes, etc. throughout the process.
Getting to Watanabe Island from the majority of places in Mainland Katamegi is a difficult task for most, as the only mode of trasportation to the isolated isle is one of the few weekly flights - courtesy of Katamegi Air System - departing Seken. Seasonal cruises also visit the island, however these few voyages originate mainly from Okinawa, with the odd vessel or two coming from Hong Kong via Taipei.
As previously mentioned - The island of Watanabe is full of luxury accomodation affordable to the bulk of Katamegi citizens. The most famed of these resorts (The Tropico and the Sands) are modern towers renowned for their hospitality, cuisine and recreational activities such as boat hires and snorkelling. Though all are fluent in Japanese, most staff of these establishments also have some english skills, as well as a little knowledge of basic phrases in languages such as Chinese and French.
Watanabe, though thought of as a beach resort town, also holds a few cultural jewls such as the ones in mainland Katamegi. One of these (actually a resort itself) Is the Tsu Retreat, a cultural spa hotel built in the traditional Japanese architectural style. Another famous attraction of Watanabe is the National Museum of Watanabe, a modern facility hosting many exhibits about the island's history, traditions and ancient cultures.
