Access from the airport is by bus (Airport Limousine (route D/DE) or Local bus (route 120)) or taxi.

For those staying at The Busena Terrace or The Naha Terrace (a group hotel of The Busena Terrace), there is also a complimentary hotel shuttle between those hotels (Transportation between the airport and The Naha Terrace is to be arranged on your own).

The Busena Terrace which locates just nearby the conference venue (Bankoku Shinryokan) is a first-class hotel where the participants of the Okinawa Summit stayed. Located on a large plot of land facing a wonderful beach, and is one of the best resort hotels suitable for welcoming visitors from around the world.
At ALC'22, in order to stimulate interaction with the world's top researchers, we have prepared a number of morning and evening programs, including discussion rooms, evening sessions, buffet-style simple lunches and evening snacks. However, since the conference venue is in a perfect location, there are no nearby hotels except for the Busena Terrace. Due to the undulating terrain, even the closest hotel listed in the tourist guide is almost 30 minutes away by foot. Also, The surrounding roads are not well lit at night and are not suitable for walking. Therefore, we would like to recommend you to stay at The Busena Terrace as an official accommodation. The Busena Terrace has offered a special rate for ALC participants as shown below. First-class breakfast (all you can eat!) is included in the room rate.
For those who wish to stay in Naha City central before or after the conference, The Naha Terrace of the same hotel group is also available at a special rate. You can also book The Naha Terrace through the hotel reservation website below.
