A great way to move around within Okinawa, for those of you who are visiting for the first time on their own, is the bus. There aren’t any trains in Okinawa, so the only public transportation is the monorail in Naha-City. Other than that, your only options are taking the taxi, the bus, or renting a car. Many visitors opt for renting a car because of the flexibility it offers, but driving in an area you aren’t familiar with can be nerve-racking. You also can’t have a sip of alcohol if you’re a driver. Don’t you also wish you could enjoy the view while traveling? If so, the bus is definitely for you. We’ll let you in on how you can make the most of your bus ride.
