Cape Hedo, Kunigami-son

The northernmost tip of Okinawa Island, Cape Hedo combines far-reaching ocean views and a rocky coastline. Walk along lush green trails that hug the cliffs' edge, gazing over clear blue water crashing against the rocks. Drop a coin in one of the many boxes to pay tribute to the gods of sea and wind, and look for the white stone sculpture of a mythical creature with the body of a fish and the head of a bird. If you're itching to get into the water, you'll find plenty of good spots for snorkeling and scuba diving.

  •  From manza, where this inn is located, if you don't take a stop way, you can rent a car for about 1 hour and 37 minutes.  I stopped by Kourijima on the way to Navi,but it didn't take much time.  Most of the route siss es, and there are many prohibited sections to step over, but if you run as much as half, the traffic will decrease and you will be able to run at your own pace. There were a lot of wonderful scenery places along the way, and there was a place where I wanted to stay and take a picture, but there was a place which was more than a place to return, and i had the passenger take a picture. National Route 58 is a moderate winding road as you approach Cape Hedo, so you can enjoy driving. There is no hairpin curve, but Cape Bedo is the northernmost point in Okinawa. This time, the weather sometimes sleet and scenery was not able to be seen, but you can enjoy the scenery of the coast of Okinawa of the strange rock.

  • Sweeping ocean views and super interesting coastal landscape at the northernmost cape of Okinawa. The coastal drive along the way is very pleasant too.  more »

  • Bit of a drive but if you enjoy driving and seeing sights most tourists won't see then take the drive and keep going to the start of route 58 and continue down to Higashi on 70. As for Hedo itself, the views are spectacular and amenities are improving with a new restaurant and shop being built as we speak.
  • Located at the southern most tip of the main Okinawa island. An ocean view with an extended horizon. Make one feel humble.
