Thanks for that, also I am looking to travel from Fukuoka to Okinawa for a weekend trip with my daughter in November, studying the train times, I am thinking maybe we should fly down. What is the best way to book this flight? should I book the trip from now or wait till I arrive. We will be looking for a relaxing beachy type weekend so if anyone has any recommendations on where to stay I would greatly appreciate it.

Your best option for a weekend trip to Okinawa is to book a package deal with flight & hotel. If your daughter lives in Fukuoka it is best for her to check around the travel agencies there. She may need to recruit a Japanese friend to help translate!

There are some English-speaking travel agencies here in Osaka that have branches in Fukuoka as well. Here's two, but you can't book from abroad:

I don't know how it could be done outside of Japan. Even in Japan it wouldn't be so easy to do it yourself.

Might I suggest a weekend trip by train down to Kagoshima instead?
