Okinawa, Japan Trip 2020 - Day 1 - Making my way from Okinawa International Airport to Kokusai Street, Naha , Okinawa (Travelled in January 2020)
Finally, we travelled to Okinawa, Japan. We took Jetstar and the flight journey is about 5 hours direct flight. It was a red eye flight and we could not sleep in the plane cause of crying babies. We reached Okinawa 8am (Japan time, Singapore is 7am). Went to hunt for breakfast as it was too early to check in hotel anyway. Decided to have MacDonald breakfast with a great view of the airport runway. After breakfast, we went to look for the monorail station which is located near the domestic terminal. It is very easy to locate, just follow the signs. We booked our hotel in Kokusai Street, so we need to alight at Prefecture Office Station, the fare is 270 yen. Transportation is expensive in Okinawa, if there's four people sometimes it is cheaper to get a cab. The monorail ride from Naha International Airport to Kokusai Street is only ten minutes. Great view along the way. Finally we arrived at Prefecture Office Monorail Station. We took the lift to the street level, from here, we drag our luggages to Hotel Gracery which is about 5 minutes walk away. Very convenient and easy to locate the hotel. Good location.
