Easy to figure out what station to go to. I used Google maps to find what was at each station and from there you can figure out what price ticket you need to buy on the easy to use ticket machines . We used it often on shopping trips.

Read a lot about how good this service - it wonderful, so good so simple. It transported us to all the key Naha locations shine and rain....and there was a lot of rain. For best value & speed of access but a one or two day pass. If only all Cities were like Naha!

Yui Rail is the transportation of choice to explore Naha. From the Naha Airport upon your arrival, you can take this transportation to bring you to major key points in the city. It is also the cheapest transportation from the airport.

The Yui Rail is extremely easy to use especially fron the airport to Naha city but also getting around if the weather is not good or you are not in the "walking" mood.

Sadly, Okinawa does understand mass transit like mainland Japan; he Okinawa Monorail is no exception. While an interesting form of transportation the system really takes you nowhere. The system runs from Naha International Airport around 'downtown' Naha and ends up near Shuri Castle. The system is limited to one articulated car. Elevated stations are limited to one car so the...
