|Close to 60 vessels on international cruise, both regular and occasional
services, visit Naha Port each year; the port is one of Japan's most popular
It does not have an exclusive wharf yet to handle large passenger vessels,
and therefore uses a cargo wharf as a temporary measure. The number of
cruise ships visiting Naha is only expected to rise, and therefore an exclusive
berth for cruise ships is scheduled to be built by 2009 in the Wakasa zone
of Tomari Wharf, which is located in the urban district.
@Downtown and Kokusai Street are only 15 minutes away on foot from this
cruise ship berth. How about spending some time on the white sandy Naminoue
Beach, or at Fukushuen, a Chinese garden.
@We will strive to be Japan's international exchange hub in the South,
and become an international cruise base.
