The Naha (なは?) was a sleeper train service operated in Japan by Kyushu Railway Company (JR Kyushu), which ran from Kyoto to Kumamoto, passing through Osaka, Okayama, Kokura, and Hakata. It once extended to Nishi-Kagoshima. The journey between Kyoto and Kumamoto was 801.4 km and took approximately 11½ hours.
