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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Naha: Nanjo (Sefa-Utaki & Okinawa World Culture Kingdom Gyokusendo), American Village (in Chatan-cho) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Onna-son). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Shurijo Castle, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Clara Church, don't miss a visit to Kokusaidori, and enjoy the sand and surf at Naminoue Beach.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Naha trip itinerary maker .
