Naha is a port city and capital of Okinawa - Japan's most southern prefecture. The city has population around 320,000 and covers a total area of approx 39 km2 (15 ml2). The port is on East China Sea, located on Okinawa Island's southern coast. The city was officially established in May 1921.
Naha is Okinawa Prefecture's economic, education and political center. The rebuilt Shuri Castle (former royal palace of Ryukyu Kingdom) is one of the finest Okinawan castles and among Naha's most important historical sites. The palace with its series of underground tunnels served as a command post for the Japanese military during WW2 (1939-1945). The castle was destroyed at the end of the war (in 1945) by the US forces. Today, Shuri Castle is reconstructed and registered as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The covered with beautiful mangrove woods Lake Man is another tourist attraction. The lake is located on the boundary of Tomigusuku city and is Ramsar-listed. Ramsar Convention (aka Convention on Wetlands) is an international treaty for conservation and sustainable use of wetlands. It is named after Ramsar city in Iran, where the Convention on Wetlands was signed in 1971.
An interesting fact is that Naha-te (aka Nawate) is a type of martial art that developed here.
