I know there are ferries between China and Japan and I know there are no ferries between Okinawa and Taiwan.

But I'm not sure whether I'm missing something when I try to look for ferries between anywhere in China and anywhere in Okinawa.

Are there any ferries operating such routes?

There are ferries operating from Shanghai to Kobe and Osaka, by multiple companies

From Osaka you can definitely catch a ferry to Naha from Shimonoseki I am not so sure but you can probably find domestic ferries to Osaka and catch one from there to Naha or get to Kagashima and do the same.
