This drone footage captured two whales swimming off coast of Okinawa Prefecture, southwestern Japan.

Uehara Natsuki, who took the video, believes they are humpback whales. Whales that migrate north to feed in Alaskan waters are often spotted in the waters around Okinawa during this time of the year.
