Naha is the capital city of Japan’s southern tropical islands, Okinawa. The city is popular for sightseeing as there are numbers of tourist spots including historical monuments, museums and the shopping street. Naha is also the main hub in Okinawa with the Naha international airport connecting numbers of cities in Japan and abroad, and the large ferry port connecting to small remote islands of Okinawa.
Although Okinawa is best known for luxurious resorts on the seaside, there are also cheap accommodations which are suitable for backpackers. Naha has plenty of hotel options with various price range.
