On the streets, the makeup of Naha may differ from expectation, visitors can witness the myriad of travellers and backpackers weaving between the quintessential traffic jam. To get right in the heart of the action, Kokusai Street is a mile long stretch of coffee shops, restaurants and clothing stores, though be prepared to dodge in and out of the rushing foot traffic. Next to Kokusai Street, the Makeshi Public Market on main Market Street is a hub of energy, with endless stalls offering local delicacies.
Away from the busy streets lined with outlets, many cultural landmarks are scattered around the city. For a touch of education into the history of the area, there are a couple of museums that are well worth a visit, alternatively, the historical sites of Shrikinjocho Stone Path and Shurijo Castle are perfect for a day of sightseeing.
The Naha monorail links the major areas of the city, though it doesn’t run to the port. Much of the city centre can be covered by foot, or there are taxis for quick and convenient transport.
