Naha Airport is the main gateway to Okinawa Prefecture in Japan.

A separate country for much of its history, Okinawa still has its own language and culture. This history makes it a particularly interesting part of Japan to visit and, combined with spectacular beaches, it is certainly an unforgettable experience for most. Skyscanner's monthly search tool can help you find the cheapest flights to Okinawa Naha Airport during any time of the year.
