Naha

Naha ©
Naha, the capital of Okinawa, has deep roots: Stone Age relics have been found in the city, and through the Middle Ages it rose in importance in the Ryukyu Kingdom.
Get a sense of the local culture at Okinawa Prefectural Museum & Art Museum and Sefa-Utaki. Visiting Cape Manzamo and Okinawa World Culture Kingdom Gyokusendo will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Naha: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Onna-son) and Himeyuri Peace Museum (in Itoman). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Shurijo Castle, wander the streets of Yachimun Street, see the interesting displays at Okinawa Prefecture Karate Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Naminoue Beach.

To see more things to do, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Naha itinerary planner .

You can fly from Miyakojima to Naha in 2.5 hours. In February, daily temperatures in Naha can reach 22°C, while at night they dip to 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Thu) to allow time to take a bus back home.
