Naha Airport, the gateway to Okinawa, has a Travel Support Desk, “Tourist Information Center for People with Disabilities and Seniors (Okinawa Barrier-Free Tour Center)” which provides advice about planning your travel and support during your journey. The center not only provides advice you need prior to your travel and while on a journey, but also offers rental wheelchairs, baby buggies, chair-boats, nursing-care equipment, etc.
Furthermore, there is a “dedicated boarding and alighting stop for visitors with disabilities” at the airport which ensures the safety while getting on and off a car.
As a means of transportation, we recommend a self-propelled rental car with a lift or an accessible taxi accompanied by a driver to your travel. If you are travelling in a big group or a training camp, “Sora-port” bus or a large-sized bus with a lift are recommended.
