“Inexpensive and convenience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Clean and efficient. You get a great view of the city. There is a day pass which if you will be taking the monorail at least 3 times in a day is better to buy a day pass.

“best transportation in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is the only transportation we used in Naha city except for our legs:)

Very convenient to connect Airport (only 15min to main shopping stations) and Shuri (30min to Airport and 15min to shopping street).

Punctual on timetable and easy to get direction on stations/timing/exit.

1day pass only Yen 600 (we bought such for last day going to Shuri and also finally back to airport) quite good deal.

Once inconvenience is that escalator is not available in all stations and you might need to carry your luggages on steps.

“A convenient transport you can rely on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Among inconvenient public transports in the Naha area, this is the one you can rely on. It connects Okinawa International Airport and Shuri, an ancient capital of Ryukyuu Kingdom. There are a number of hotels and hostels near the stations. The monorails run very punctually, especially so compared with the local busses which are expensive if you compare their fees with those in other cities that attract tourists from the world like in Nice, San Diego, Paris among others. This does not mean that the fee of this "Yui-rail" is inexpensive, though.
