Landmarks · Castles · Gardens
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. Today, the city is a picture of modernity, recovered and thriving since its destruction during World War II, blossoming with the construction of new high-rise buildings. A trip to Naha would be incomplete without a visit to the former royal palace of the Ryukyu Empire. But for a feel of modern life in the city, the biggest attraction in Naha is Kokusai Street, a main strip of restaurants, hotels, department stores, and nightlife that buzzes with activity all day and after dark. In the build up to your vacation in Naha, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Japan trip itinerary website.
