Cape Hedo, Kunigami-son

#1 of 19 in Things to do in 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. Put Cape Hedo at the forefront of your travel plans using our Kunigami-son vacation trip planner.

    Take the east side of the island to come, just a park and small road stop. Shaved ice and ice cream along with curry and soba. Well maintained park with two shrines. Fairly popular stop on the island ...  more »

    Since long ago, lived in Okinawa, and luckily, I wanted to go but did not go around finally went to Hedo. First word, far away lol. To go in the westward route 1 hour from Nago. Home is a 2 hours until Nago on the Eastern route. But, tired of seaside and mountain driving is so much fun. And sides struggled, arrive at Cape Hedo, quite impressed lol unfortunately tarnished was empty, so weather permitting more good.

    More than 3 hours round trip is required because it takes more than an hour until Nago is a good views. Dates and other people just don't want to go in there unless something is so not what I wanted.

    The star gazing that you can do here is amazing! The drive here is breath taking! And the view is just magnificent.

    Worth a stop if you are visiting Northern Okinawa. Good parking and a couple short paved trails to some overlooks. The area has some high cliffs above the water, so the view is exciting and it is a good photo opportunity.

    Appreciate wind, sea and sharp cliff. A long drive. Place it as one of the stop by points for the north Okinawa day trip.

    One of the multiple must see locations in Okinawa. Bring yen for snacks if you decide to eat at the cape or at nearby restaurants. The drive to this location has great views so bring a camera.

    Fantastic views over the ocean, beautiful cliffs & wild countryside. Well worth the drive across the island.
