Daisekirinzan, Kunigami-son

4.5
#1 of 11 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.

  • I think in good unexpected were the facilities now remain at the entrance. People who have worked all without honorific was unreasonable was the best, and feel good. Rock borrowed no wonder, and it is nothing, or let's see? What fun it is. Naming rights would be borrowed rock want parents to be there found, right on the money too be filled like a good rock.

  • Okinawa island with nearly the northernmost from Naha city maybe in the car more than three hours, the Yomitan and 10,000 from resort areas such as the seat almost 2 hours and little access is bad. Spiritus hut parked the car in the parking lot and buy tickets in the ticket office of the starting point for walks in the shuttle bus (beverage vending machines and toilets. Also an on-site café. ) Until around, choose one of the trails, then a 4-course style. Beside the car park at supposed big buildings were built in April to open Museum of the culture of the stone. Energy coop with a brief description of the course, but many people are beautiful sea view, choose one course. Is around 30-40 minutes. And covers the major rock formations, sea views may be time limited to those who are no longer beam recommended. You can enjoy a longer Trek, if time permits, combined with other "boulders and stone forest in inspiring course subtropical nature forest course. So also for disabled persons with physical disabilities with paved road that is safe. However in barrier-free course cannot access to unusual rock formations and sea view. After walking around the other courses as "everybody without Banyan tree" is built into the subtropical nature forest course a big banyan tree on the shuttle bus driver if you ask can drop you in the middle. If Banyan after the back parking lot to yourself; Parking time is 5 minutes a little bit. Natural limestone Karst terrain and subtropical landscape is worth looking at and. Numerous rock formations named with various names, such as 'aliens' and 'the Lion King' is a little forced feeling is interesting but there is. Side door Cape somewhat I all think wouldn't hurt at about tourist or Churaumi Aquarium Hotel tourist is a little distance and fit into travel planning.

  • I select the course then walks four description hear wants to move forward, and to purchase a ticket in the parking lot, I think that the tourist not yet really known in Okinawa on the shuttle could take us to the base for exploring the Along the way from the beautiful sea view from boulders and stone forest walks, was walking through a single course, come back here. Exploring fun rock formations in sunny time is slow and it was about 90 minutes, the staff is in the middle of the course sides could faintly see Hedo and ahead the Yoron Island. You can see Japan's largest Banyan tree on the return shuttle along the way at ask
