Naha

Capital of the Ryukyu Kingdom

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 Naha's surroundings by going to Onna-son (Blue Cave, Cape Maeda, &more), Cape Zampa (in Yomitan-son) and Nanjo (Cape Chinen Park, Sefa-Utaki, &more). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Shurijo Castle, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sakimoto Shuzo Distillers, don't miss a visit to Tomari Iyumachi, and look for gifts at Wadama Honshinju Mother Sea.
