Bankoku Shinryokan is located on Busena Point, one of the most scenic spots in Okinawa, close to Nago city. "Bankoku shinryo" means "bridge between nations," which is named after a phrase carved on the large bell at Shuri Castle, the palace of the old kingdom. Since its opening in 2000, the Bankoku Shinryokan has been hosting various important events, including the G8 Summit in 2000. It takes about 2 hours from Naha airport by airport bus.
