First of all you must go to Naha, in Okinawa Prefecture.
There are several ferries departing from Kyūshū island, and travelling by plane is also confortable.

Naha Airport is connected to Japan’s major airports (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Sendai, Sapporo etc…) with direct flights.
Once you got there, you have to go to Naha’s port Tomari futō quay. You can go there by bus from the airport, getting off at “Tomari Takahashi” and then walking for a minute.

Otherwise, you can take the Yu Rail (Naha’s panoramic monorail): you have to get off at Miebashi Station and then walk for a minute.
