About Naha

Naha in the south of the main island of Okinawa is the capital city of the Prefecture and the center of business, culture, arts, entertainment and politics. Nearly all visitors will begin their visit to Okinawa by arriving at the Naha International Airport or Naha's Tomari Sea Port. The city is the most populous in the prefecture exceeding 325,000 residents.

The most popular tourist destinations in all of Okinawa are the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Naha.
