5 Best Airport Taxi Services between Naha Airport and Okinawa

If you’re planning on going to Okinawa for the first time, one of the first challenges that you will encounter is how to get from the airport to your accommodation place.

In Okinawa, public transportation such as the train or bus is not as convenient as in larger cities in Japan such as Tokyo and Osaka. Depending on where you’re staying, it might take pretty long, and at this point, you will surely be tired after a long airplane ride.

The option I would like to talk about here is to use an airport taxi service. Not only is it convenient because it will take you directly to your destination, but it is also a safe and assuring option if you’re worried about crowded transportation methods.

In this article, I will introduce to you the best airport taxi services in Okinawa that can pick you up at Naha airport.

Lastly, on our list, we have BB-Luxury Hire. This company offers airport transportation services not only in Okinawa, but also in Tokyo, Osaka, and Hokkaido.

There’s no indication of prices, so you will need to ask for a quotation to have an idea of the price. Also, they don’t specify the range in which they operate, so it is also important that you ask if they offer service to your destination.

However, the price that they are indicating is for a large vehicle (between 6 and 9 people), so if you are traveling in a large group, this service might be the cheapest option for you.

Conclusion

In conclusion, we can see that each company has its strengths that cater to different needs.

For example, if you’re looking for the best prices, then “Airport Taxi” or depending on the place of destination or number of passengers, “BB-Luxury Hire” are the ones that offer the best plans.

If you’re planning on using a ride frequently and want a more luxurious experience during your stay in Okinawa, then “Naha Hire” may be a good choice for you.

Or, if you are looking for more specific needs such as private tours or business purpose rides, then “Ryukyu Hire” or “Hire Hachiiro” might suit your needs better.

However, generally speaking, if you’re traveling with less than 6 people and are looking for reasonable prices and flexibility with its cancellation policy, then I would strongly recommend “Airport Taxi”.

In the end, I think it’s important that you know about these companies so that you know what to do in the case that you suddenly require a ride to the airport or from the airport. This, especially, taking into account the current situation with COVID.
