Used triple lights to find a local English speaking guide, Noriko who organised the transport for the day. Naha is the port for Okinawa which has a lot of history much related to WWII. We visited the peace memorial museum the Japanese naval underground headquarters and Hack Saw ridge. This part of the tour was enlightening and very poignant. Although sad I am glad I took the tour. To lighten the rest of the day we visited Okinawa World and Shuri castle. Read Less

We missed our stop in Okinawa and made it to Ishigaki. Sadly, we would have prefered it be the other way around. Ishigaki is like a caribbean island, owned by Japan. It is pretty and picturesque, but not very historical.

The cruise critic system fails to recognise Yakushima as a port, so we will mention our walking tour in passing.This excursion was well organised to tour in the forest at 1000 metres above sea level. A good experience! Our chosen excursion for Okinawa was The Battle of Okinawa, which gave insights of the horrors inflicted on the Okinawan natives by the Japanese. And also of the recovery efforts subsequent to the war. Here, as our ship was departing port, we were buzzed by 4 F18 fighters at low level and using afterburner. NOISY! Read Less

Decent stop; went to the folk village and royal gardens. Tour guide was a bit too much of a comedian and not enough of a informative guide.

Free shuttles were provided to and from port and main shopping street in town. We had our own plans for the whole day, Sunday. We prebooked a taxi for the day, worked out about £130 through a company called Cool Okinawa Travel. Driver didn’t speak English but did have our pre printed itinerary and the company offered a translation service if required if you called them. We used our driver and car to visit Cape Manzamo, Ocean Expo Park and loads of places contained within such as Aquarium and Emerald Beach. Then the main shopping street in Naha. Read Less

Locals performed Okinawan drum dancing during arrival and departure. Some travelers actually walked to the near-by convenient stores to shop. Plenty of taxis. There were souvenirs to buy in case you miss something.
