Additional Information

Academic information
Okinawa once had a railway operated by the prefectural government before the World War II. The operation started in the Taisho Era and ended in the early Showa Era. The train ran from Naha, Itoman, Kadena and even to Okinawa City. Unfortunately, the railway was damaged heavily during the war and most parts of the railway cannot be seen today. There was a bridge column over Kokuba River, in Naha city. The bridge column is no longer there as the city development has progressed. Some parts of the trains are preserved in the Tsubogawa East Park and Ginowan City Museum.
