With its beautiful contrast of white walls and blue skies, Umikaji Terrace on Senagajima Island (operated by Resorts Ryukyu Corporation), has been likened to a World Heritage site as the "Amalfi of Japan."

One of the three most popular spots in Okinawa, the number of visitors to Umikaji Terrace has exceeded 3.3 million since its opening in 2015, with visits continuing in spite of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

In order to promote the charms of Umikaji Terrace, Resorts Ryukyu Corporation is having a reviewing campaign in which they will offer a lucky pair of visitors chosen by lottery up to 40,000 JPY per person to cover transportation expenses* in exchange for staying a night this summer (until August 30th), having as much fun as you want, and taking 10 minutes to fill out a form reviewing their impressions of the experience at the end.

Since you're only working for 10 minutes, according to their press release, this works out to "being the highest hourly wage part-time summer job in Japan!?"

* According to our research, depending on which dates you choose to visit within the specified campaign period, round-trip airfare to Naha Airport—a mere 20 minutes from Umikaji Terrace by shuttle bus—from Tokyo's Haneda Airport, for example, is available for under 40,000 JPY at the time of writing.

The deadline for applying is July 18th (see below for details), so don't miss it!
