Los Angeles International (LAX) is situated 16 miles from the Downton Los Angeles area and can be reached by driving along I-110 and I-105 before turning in to Sepulveda Boulevard. This airport features flights to Okinawa Naha (OKA) and for such a trip, the flight duration is roughly 13-and-a-half hours. The approximately 8-mile journey to Shuri can be done in less than 30 minutes using the monorail or you can make use of a bus.
Naha is home to Shuri Castle, which is a World Heritage Site and well worth visiting. In addition, you'll also find Gokokuji Temple, Sogenji Temple and Naminoue Shrine in the area. To spend time outdoors, visit Fukushu-En Park or Shikinaen Garden. The prime shopping areas in Naha is Kokusai Dori, which is the main shopping precinct as well as Mutsumibashi Shopping Arcade. Also worth checking out is Himeyuri Peace Musuem, Okinawa Peace Park as well as Okinawa World. Visit Naminoue Beach if you want to relax and work on your tan.
Thanks to the temperature in Naha, you can get away with packing light clothes such as shorts or t-shirts. Be sure to bring an umbrella or raincoat if visiting during May to November as this is the typhoon season. The center of Naha City features plenty of hotels that are close to popular attractions while the downtown area is also a popular choice for accommodation.
