The final day of your trip. With the beautiful scenery of Okinawa fresh in your mind, you head to Naha City from Northern Okinawa. You probably want to buy souvenirs before you leave, and there are numerous types of souvenirs available at the airport, but we suggest stopping by a nearby outlet mall before heading to the airport. Let’s get a souvenir for yourself as a memory of the trip.
After leaving a hotel in Northern Okinawa, let’s go to Naha Airport in Naha City. But, you do not want to just pass by Central Okinawa.
