getting around

The road system here in okinawa is not that complex. It's very easy to drive around as long as you keep in mind the major roads such as Route 58, 330 and 329 which run from north to south.
They also have an expressway that runs almost the legnth of the island but be careful the speed limit hee is 80 kph and they have lot of speed traps.

Be aware that in the island they enforce the seatbelt law very strictly. Also it rains a lot in the island so during rainy weather , the road becomes very slippery because of the coral component in the asphalt so watch your speeds.

The local gov't frown upon drinking and driving so be careful. I head stories that people who got pulled for DUI are subject to fine of $300 bith driver and passenger are expected to pay this fine
