  • The Hirakubo peninsula is beautiful! Scenic point. About 20 minutes by car via R390 from the airport.  more »
  • This sight offers a spectacular 270 degree costal view of over the northern part of the island. Worth stopping by when you Re close but not worth driving to from the other side of the island.  more »
  • Love the view here. Nice coastal views all around . Quiet and breezy. Slowly walk up to the viewpoint hut and take in the view and the sea breeze.  more »

  • A very scenic observatory with fantastic view of the ocean. It might be easier to come with a rental car. Highly recommended for couples and families with kids.
  • I went there twice on July 6, 2017. When I first drove up, the sky was cloudy. My photos were not that colourful. I then drove on to the deep north of Oshigaki. I could see and smell farm houses on my way. When the sun came out in my return trip, I went up again. Relatively speaking, quite a lot people drove up to the Observation Point. While many took selfies under the pavilion, the place could look prettier from a distance. One of my added photos features that.
  • An observation point with amenities including toilets and vending machines. Beautiful tropical flowers flank the walk up to the deck. More people at this observation point. Free parking is available.
  • nice place to just hang out and admire the coast line of the island
  • Nice views with amenities, easily accessible with a car
