I stayed at the Hotel Grantia Naha, being part of the group Route Inn Hotels, a modern hotel not far from Naha port. It is about a 12-minute walk to Asahibashi Monorail Station and a 30-minute walk to Kokusai-dori, the city’s main street. There you can find lots of stores, restaurants and bars and also the Heiwa-dori Shopping Arcade. Very interesting as well is Makishi Public Market where you can find all the ingredients of the Okinawa cuisine like subtropical seafood, local pork and island vegetables.

Better Girl, a breakfast cafe at the heart of Naha City in Okinawa that aspires to do the sandwich right. They're serious enough in their mission that they send staff to Portland once a year to learn everything about the craft.

Shuri Castle

Shuri Castle

Shuri Castle was built in the 14th century and was the palace of the Ryukyu Kingdom. It was neglected for almost 400 years and suffered great damage during the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. After the war, the castle was used as a university campus, but from 1992 it was rebuilt through extensive reconstructions based on historical records and photographs. The castle served as the administrative center for several centuries until Okinawa became a Japanese prefecture in 1879. The castle is listed as one of the Ryukyu Kingdom's castles declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
