Okinawa & the Southwest Islands

Getting around

Countless aircraft buzz between the islands, though almost as many ferries do the same. There are ferries from Kagoshima to Naha and from Naha to Ishigaki-jima that stop at all the major islands in between.

On the larger islands, you can easily get around via public bus or rental car. On the smaller islands, you can always rent a moped or push bike for the day.
