A comfortable but packed ride to and from the airport. The first train arrived 6:15 at the airport. This should be earlier. Our flight departed 7:20 and that was a bit tight. If only we could see more using the monorail. Honestly, the track is...More

If you’re planning on taking public transportation in Okinawa, be prepared to not have your IC cards from Tokyo work.  Okinawa has its own system and limited lines. My trip to Okinawa landed me in the International Terminal of Naha airport at 8pm (connecting from...More

You can cover enough interesting spots just by Yui Rail and walking, so for a short trip to Naha, this is probably the only public transportation you'll need, and easy to use for someone visiting Japan for the first time.

那覇市内を通る沖縄唯一の鉄道で、通勤と観光の足として広く利用されています。 那覇市内の観光であれば、移動手段はゆいレールだけでも充分です。利用の際は、1日もしくは2日のフリー乗車券であれば、ゆいレール界隈は自由に移動できます(1日フリー乗車券:800円 2日フリー乗車券:1,400円)。一方で、連日利用者が多いことから、基本的に混雑しない時間帯は無いと思った方がいいでしょう。車両も二両のみであり、混雑すると車内は狭く感じます。スーツケース等の重い荷物はホテルにおいて、身軽な状態で利用するといいでしょう。 乗車券にQRコードが印刷されており、改札はセンサーにQRコードをかざして通ります。乗車券を自動改札機のスロットに入れるタイプに慣れていると、最初は戸惑うかもしれませんが、次第に慣れますし、駅員の方々がきちんとナビゲーションしてくれます。 It is the only railway in Okinawa that passes through Naha city and is widely used as a commuting and tourist foot. If you are going to sightsee in Naha city only, I think that the it alone is enough for...More

The monorail runs from Naha Airport to Shuri (close to Shuri Castle). The maximum fare is 330 yen. It traverses the major spots in central Naha, and the travel time from one end of the line to the other is about 35 minutes. Very convenient!

Despite being advertised as a common transport tool in Naha - I find this an overrated commute system. It's better to use either buses or taxis to get to where you need as most spots you still need to walk a considerable amount of distance....More
