If you are traveling in Naha, Okinawa, riding the Yui rail is a great way to travel. Many of Naha's sites are located near the monorail line. The Yui rail is also an excellent way to travel to and from Naha Airport to other parts of Naha. Also, there is the option of buying a one or two day pass.... More

We bought the 48 hr (2 day) tickets at 1200 yen each which is really worth it as it allows one unlimited travel on the monorail within the timeframe. As most attractions are within 10-15 mins walk from the monorail, it is really a cheap and convenient way to travel around the city for sightseeing. The monorail also goes to... More

This is an excellent transportation system, with "trains" every 10 minutes or so. It can get very crowded (I was quite squashed by the number of school kids visiting the Shurijo castle, but I guess I survived it. It's a great and inexpensive way to get to the city from the airport, but my only real concern is that the... More

We purchased a day pass and went from one end to the other and back just to see some of the city. Long wait between trains and a meandering route. It was much more efficient to just walk and use a taxi when needed.

The train journeys were always smooth and fast. The one / two day pass were also great as they had helped to save some money. The compartment was so clean that I could see the hard work done by the company. However, as the trains were relatively small. If you were carrying much luggage, it would be nice to avoid... More

Since you cannot count on the buses being on time because of the traffic, the monorail can pretty much get you within walking distance of any place in the city, and it is always on time.

This monorail is manly focus on the south region, and the time interval of each rail is around 10 mins. It is good if you are not going to drive. The cost of each trip is bit high in Japan, and recommend to have well planning of your destination for the selection of ticket, like single trip, 1 day pass... More

Besides being a bit crowded at some stops, the only available subway like mode of transportation is relatively affordable and convenient. It obviously beats the taxi for any location near the stops along the way. It was perfect for my hotel, the Rocore which was only a few mins by foot from Kencho-mae station. It was only 260 yen as...

Very easy to use the monorail. It doesn't always go where you'd like it to, but walking isn't that difficult in this area. One example where there's walking after taking the rail are the Shurijo Castle and the Stone roadway attractions. For us, we took the rail then walked the castle. Then we walked to the stone roadway and found... More
