Naha — 5 nights

Capital of the Ryukyu Kingdom

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.

Explore Naha's surroundings by going to Kayaking & Canoeing (in Kadena-cho), Motobu-cho (Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium & Manatee Center) and American Village (in Chatan-cho). The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Shurijo Castle, make a trip to Kokusaidori, get a new perspective on nature at Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum, and expand your understanding of the military at Former Japanese Navy Underground Headquarters.
