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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Naha: Nakagusuku Castle Ruins (in Kitanakagusuku-son), Nanjo (Cape Chinen Park, Sefa-Utaki, &more) and Itoman (Okinawa Peace Memorial Park & The Tower of Himeyuri). There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Shurijo Castle, get to know the fascinating history of Naminoue-gu Shrine, get a new perspective on nature at Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum, and don't miss a visit to Yachimun Street.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Naha route app.

Tokyo to Naha is an approximately 5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of train, taxi, and flight. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Tokyo in March, with highs in Naha at 24°C and lows at 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) so you can take a bus to Nago.

Nago ©
Developed as an upper-middle class tourist town in the northern part of Okinawa Island, Nago offers a wide range of leisure activities from swimming to exploration of ruins and rainforests.
Explore Nago's surroundings by going to Nakijin-son (Nakijin Castle Ruins & Kouri Ocean Tower), Motobu-cho (Bise no Fukugi Tree Road, Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, &more) and Gesaji River (in Higashi-son). There's still lots to do: snap pictures at Kouri Ohashi, get great views at Cape Hedo, take in nature's colorful creations at Tropical Dream Center, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Daisekirinzan.

To see ratings, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Nago online road trip planner.

Traveling by bus from Naha to Nago takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. Traveling from Naha in March, plan for slightly colder nights in Nago, with lows around 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
