Illuminated Shuri Castle by night
× How was it?

Home to more than 300,000 people, Naha (ߔe) is the capital and largest city of Okinawa Prefecture. With its port and airport, it also functions as the regional transportation hub, offering direct flight and ferry connections into other parts of Okinawa, Japan and Asia.

The former capital of the Ryukyu Kingdom around Shuri Castle was located within the borders of today's Naha City. However, since Naha was almost completely destroyed in the Battle of Okinawa, only few of the city's buildings predate the war.
