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.

  • Okinawa is seven times, visited for the first time. You can take pictures, walk one kind was GW but not far more people, about 30 minutes. The plane was flying a lot of swallowtail butterfly, children were excited.

  • It is beautiful nature place. Cafe was closed on the day we arrived, so no comments on that. Look carefully into the ocean as we were lucky enough to spot some turtles swimming in the water. It has few spots were you can make nice pictures of cliffs and 5he ocean
  • Just a stunning location, many great pictures here. I didn't really expect to spend much time here, but it's just beautiful at every turn. Would definitely come and see for any nature lovers.
  • Beautiful scenery, although there is not much to do here. I believe the only reason for going here is to acknowledge that you've been to the northernmost point on the island.
  • Pretty cool place to go see. If you live near the middle or south end of Okinawa just know this trip will take you quite a while. There is quite a bit to see walking around here, there are a few trails that take you farther west and closer to the water. Feel free to explore around a bit while you are up here as it’s not worth making multiple trips (in my humble opinion). The giant bird you see from the eastern side looking back towards the island is Yanbarukuina Observation Deck, it’s a pretty cool place to go see as well. So definitely check that out since you’re already up here.
  • Worth the drive up north. Super windy the day we went. Buy snacks before you come here.
