Located just outside of its capital Naha, Okinawa Airport provides air service to Okinawa Island. At present, Okinawa may only be reached by ferry or air connection. With some ferry services only taking place once a week and occasionally lasting as long as 44 hours, it is little wonder that air travel is the most popular transport method.
Okinawa Airport (Naha Airport) offers domestic air connections to Tokyo's Haneda Airport, Osaka's Itami and Kansai Airport, Sapporo's New Chitrose Airport and many others. Airlines operating from the Okinawa include: JAL; ANA and Skymark.
International flights to other parts of Asia can be found from the terminal including regularly scheduled trips to China, Korea and the Philippines.
Within the airport, public transportation is available, however this is only truly useful for those restricting their travel in Okinawa Island to Naha only. From the airport Yui monorail service connects the terminal with the heart of Naha.
Apart from this, transportation on Okinawa is restricted solely to buses. While they are plentiful, it can limit your travel. The network can also be very complicated to the visitor.
Those exploring beyond Naha are strongly encouraged to use a car hire service. While traffic can be congested in Naha, the layout of the road network makes driving a dream. Roads are well maintained and signs can be found en route in both Japanese and English.
Driving in Okinawa is on the left-hand side, similar to the UK. Road signs conform to international standards, so are easy to interpret.
While in some parts of the world drivers have reputations for their reckless driving, drivers in Okinawa are known to show consideration - both for their fellow drivers and the rules of the road.
