Cape Hedo, Kunigami-son
(4.1/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful scenery. You can see Japan Sea from this Cape with stunning views of the multi-color water. The Space Chicken statute is quiet cheesy but cute. 
  • Beautiful scenery. You can see East China Sea from this vantage point. A small path leads you around the cape. Quite windy too. 
  • The last time weather. This time, on Saturday revisited's perfect weather. From Naha on the open road, pleasant drive to arrive. Instead, too many tourists were feeling good. To be sucked into the cliff on the right side of the cringe at the foot. Out way too amazing sunset. However, traffic jams along the way. From Naha was about 250 miles, round trip.

  • Beautiful scenery. You can see East China Sea from this vantage point. A small path leads you around the cape. Quite windy too.
  • Gorgeous scenery, well worth all the driving to reach the northern most point of Okinawa. Be rewarded by clear blue sea and big waves crashing against the cliffs. Note that the nearest eateries are about 25 min drive South, and some areas round the Cape don't have 3G/4G signals.
  • Nice open and wild scenery. We took the road 70 (east coast) to get there. Longer but a very enjoyable winding coastal road with almost nobody on it. If you are short on time, the road 58 (west coast) is faster and nice too.
  • Come on people !!, I don't know why or see why to give this place anything less than a 5 star rating. Quite an experience I can say. Yes it is a far drive, yes the roads are winding, yes there aren't much restaurants in the area, yes it can be windy, yes the terrain is rocky, grassy, hills..... If any of the above is a reason to give this place anything less than 5 stars, then something is wrong with you!!!!
  • Really peacefull, the water is so beautiful really. Really romantic I think, a place to go with your loved one.
