I am planning to visit Okinawa in Oct with my 70s mother. Please help me. We walk slow. 1. Okinawa ocean park- I think we may spend a day there, for the churaumi aquarium and the beach walk - any way I can arrange for a drop off or pickup for us? 2. Mikan picking - anywhere that we can go for Mikan picking? Prior arrangement? 3. Any local tour we can arrange? My mom understand mandarin and Cantonese. 4. Or any one day tour we can join 5. Love to visit the market, how to get to makishi market? 6. Better to stay by the beach or Naha for easy access to all places? Thank you and do let me know if there any easy access beaches that I should not miss. We will not be going to historical places because of time constraint Xie xie GC

Aloha Posters! Scheduled to go to Haneda, Tokyo in June from Honolulu. In doing basic research, the air cost from Tokyo to Okinawa is around1000. Any ideas as to why the cost is so much? I'm spending a little over this already just to go from paradise to Japan as is. If anyone knows cheaper alternatives than flying please share! :)
The OSU (Official Spousal Unit) spent a number of formative years in Okinawa at the US SAC base there during the 60s (Air Force brat). It turns out that I have a number of system-wide upgrades on American Airlines that expire in early 2013. The OSU has never been back to Japan or Okinawa, so it occurs to me that if I come into a lot of money, a trip to the Orient before the upgrades expire would be prudent. So, if you were going to Okinawa for a couple of days for old times' sake, what would you do? She had told me about the base (like the night that the fully loaded B-52 crashed on takeoff, making a very large crater), the unapproved little eateries that her mother would take the two kids to, the beaches where they hunted for rock lobster and occasionally found old ordinance, the places where she would ride horses...would do former Air Force brats do when they return after 40+ years? I don't mind driving - I learned to drive in Rome at the age of 23 after all - so if a car is needed to see all the stuff that a former resident would want to see, that's OK with me. I also assume that there is far more to see in Japan than in Okinawa (duh) but that is a separate discussion (I am not sure she went there more than once on R&R - she has some stories about how her diminutive blond gaijin mother would tell jokes in bad Japanese and thoroughly confuse the locals who wondered just who the heck this woman was...) Anyway, thoughts on Okinawa itself would be appreciated... Bill

Hi there, I am planning my trip to Japan for next summer and would like to go to okinawa at the end of June which is the end of the rainy season there.

Thanks!
Hello everyone, up to whattime of the day is the monorail open for passengers? I am arriving in Naha with a very late after-midnight flight, so I was wondering if it will be operating by that time. If not, is my only option to go to the city centre a taxi and if yes, how much would that cost me approximately? Thank you!
Will be in Naha at noon on September 21, 2010 by cruiseship and want to visit Shuri Castle, how could I get there from the port? How long the round-trip usually taken (the ship leaves at 8:00 PM)? Is the selftrip is more economical than the tour trip offered by the cruisship ($125)? Thanks a lot for any timely help!
I will be flying from the USA to Tokyo. I would like to take a Ferry in to Okonawa. Is this possible?? Thanks!!

We would like a travel guide for a one day travel/tour for 2 or 4 people in Okinawa. We were going to go with another group who have a great guide, but they are mainly interested in military sites and we want to spend some time on those and much on other things. We may still go with our original group, but would really prefer to just pick and choose what we want to see in the 8 hours the ship is in port. Will someone please email us..We need to do this ASAP. Thank you. email@example.com
