Buses available as convenient means of transportation on Okinawa Main Island

Many types of buses run in the mainland of Okinawa. There are express buses connecting the airport and main hotels, bus tours with guides that run consistently, and buses that you use to go to work or school.

Take advantage of the Airport Limousine Bus that directly links between the airport and your hotel, scheduled tour buses that are popular for visiting popular tourist destinations efficiently, and fixed-route buses that service all regions on the island.

Take the “Airport Limousine Bus” to reach resort hotels directly.

The Airport Limousine Bus is a convenient option for reaching popular resorts and hotels in the central and northern parts of Okinawa Main Island directly from Naha Airport. It offers four routes based on destination and is perfect for those who do not plan on renting a vehicle as well as those who wish to spend their first day in Okinawa unwinding at their hotels.

The Airport Limousine Bus does not require reservations, thus there are times when buses fill up prior to purchasing tickets. If you know which bus you want to take, we suggest that you arrive at the boarding place as early as possible.
