May 16 2018 Cruise arrival , with 8 hours to explore Naha

Hi there, I will be on a Star cruise with my mother who is a senior citizen and will be arriving at Naha Port approximately 12 noon of May 16 2018, and will have about 8 hours to explore Naha. Any suggestion how could we ( with my mother who is at her late 70;s but still great as far as mobility is concerned) be able to see the various attractions at Naha? The cruise has its own excursion package but I wanted to see other options that maybe more economical but worthwhile to enjoy Naha. Any tip and information is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I spend 2 - 3 hours in Shuri Castle. It won't be difficult to explore only Naha by Yui Rail and some taxi ride.

Hi, I'm also taking the same cruise with my family (7 of us, 3 of which are senior citizens) and I would like to know if there are sightseeing taxis/vans with English speaking drivers at the port and how much do they usually charge.

May I also know if it is easy to get a taxi from shuri castle?

Thanks a lot.

There's no official taxi stand in Shuri Castle Park, but there're taxis, anyway.

Thanks a lot for the info. I'm just worried that we can't get a ride back since my parents may not be able to walk to the monorail.

Btw, i've read about bus no. 1. Can we take the same bus to kokusai dori from shuri? Thanks again.

I think bus #1 goes to Yui Rail Shuri Castle station where you can ride monorail car. There're a few bus stops near Shuri Castle Park. Yui Rail station is 15 minutes walk down slope from the park.

We'll be on the same cruise on March 5, also with a few senior citizens.

May I know how many minutes from naha port to Shuri Castle by taxi? Approximate fare?

How many minutes from Shuri castle to Kokusaidori? Approximate fare?

Will 6-7 suffice for these two places or can we add another place in between? We want to have a leisurely walk and not rush too much since we're with seniors.
