has anyone rented a car in okinawa main island before?
getting intl license + driving on rhd seems like the easy part
i read parking is free or cheap...do tolls add up? how's the traffic?

looks like many attractions are doable with tourist bus but wwii sites are a PITA to get to without tax $$$$$ or car rental

^ twice,

rush hour Naha is bad but bearable,, otherwise ok, toll on highway arn't so expensive. If i remember correctly i only paid toll on way back when using expressway. most rental places give u nav, but should change to English. i had Japanese friends w/ me so wasn't bad. if you have a dashcam bring it.

i rented the day i was leaving Naha for resorts etc, so you dont have to worry about driving around in the city as everything in naha downtown is walk able.

some resort charge $10-15 overnight parking.

people are impatient in Okinawa than Osaka/Kobe and dont hesitate honking for small things (guess that's american influence).

drop off is near the airport, and gas stations are close by.

I've heard whispers and legends that mountain pass races actually happen just like in Initial D.
