Daisekirinzan, Kunigami-son

4.5
#1 of 12 in Parks in Kunigami-son
Step on the first land to emerge from the depths of the ocean at Daisekirinzan, the northern tip of Okinawa. Dated at 200 million years old, this ancient piece of land boasts lush tropical fauna, punctuated by striking rock formations reminiscent of Godzilla's spined back. Four well-marked hiking trails around the park take you through various parts of the landscape. The shortest, a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk, leads you 600 m (1,968.5 ft) through forests of banyan trees. The other trails range in length up to 1.1 km (0.6 mi), and take you across the strange rock formations and to viewing points high above the coast--expect some modest climbing. Wear sturdy shoes and bring along some water. A cafe and facilities at the trailhead let you rest and refresh after exploring this evocative landscape. Put Daisekirinzan and other Kunigami-son attractions into our Kunigami-son route planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • 3,000 yen reservation is recommended where it is. There are free courses. Now, many facilities are built over and the heard that 4/28 is open. And good to go before the holidays I'd also go after the open, may also have different fun.

  • So I couldn't go to Okinawa on a cold day in February, entering the Sea Island's northernmost and has to drive. Say either side is Hedo was then gathered near a large stone forest mountain for SR time. Didn't expect too much, but insanely good! Good point on the list. (1) four hiking trails (light mountain climbing? ) There is ideal to move the body in the middle of a long drive! And best in the winter just to eat especially Okinawa became a workout! (2) there is a sense of banyan tree wasn't really mysterious and spectacular points! And (3) can be there waiting, like the dining room is was lame family, gave me bus from the parking lot to bathe the challenge from there four hiking trails, mountain hut can also be Able to be down in the middle of the bus, watch the big banyan tree. I'd go with so-called power spots and mysterious atmosphere, so go to the shrine, a sense is the closest image. I think it is worth a visit if you go to Okinawa to see here just a little different, but the weather is bad in the North go higher!

  • Side went to Hedo, which 5-minute major stone forest mountain. Travel time on the net advance ticket reservation and purchase. With coupons, etc. is the same amount, discount plus stone souvenirs there so take a look at! Near the parking lot by an explanation of the course, go to the Cafe at the Summit starting in the minibus. Course handicap. Great views of the coast is pretty hard with all courses other than the way open from the forest! I do not know too much spiritual things, but certainly plenty of that negative ions. By the way he saw wild boar. Return air CA's great stone forest mountain is always recommended and that. It is recommended if you are going to the North!
