  •  Kurima Ohashi bridge, aimed at the Dragon Palace Castle lookout. Kurima bridge gradient in the blue of the sea on both sides of the bridge was very beautiful, and aimed at Dragon Palace Castle lookout.  Narrow road into the kurima Island, little friendliness, but arrived safely, Dragon Palace Castle lookout parking. The roof portion of the real Palace buildings (part 3) is the lookout. Yonaha maehama beach just in front of the morning of this day under umbrellas chillin had looks. The Observatory stands on a small hill, so gradations of the blue of the sea to the beach looked cleaner. Kurima bridge crossing have been through the course, and the surrounding sea was a lovely emerald blue.

  • Has been just down the timing was good seeing the Miyako-jima Island from the Observatory is also bad, but very windy. I think you want to revisit when there is no wind. On the observation deck chair.
