  • 8/21 12 sometimes went in front. The building itself has been years of little hotel, beautiful. You could just take a guided tour the hotel. 1.2 exhibition hall that introduces the life and culture of Oceania, took about 30 minutes. Just look at the learning experience around more widely and deeply. It is recommended. In the Planetarium, which stars in the summer in Okinawa enjoyed enjoyed.

  • I liked seeing all of the boats in the museum but I would have liked to see more English subtitles in their videos. It was great for learning how the Okinawans fished.  more »

  • This is an interesting place to learn about ancient, seafaring cultures, the clothes, equipment and clothing used by those who traveled by sea, years ago. There are some excellent models of the types of boats used around Asia and, multi-lingual signs help explain everything on display.

Where to stay in Motobu-cho

Most visitors to Motobu-cho opt to spend their time by the sea, so accommodations have positioned themselves accordingly. Choose from a number of beachfront hotels, resorts, and guesthouses located close to the aquarium and botanical garden, and on Sesoko Island. By the harbor in the main urban area, a few homestays and guesthouses dot the largely residential part of town. As a general rule, urban areas farther inland offer more budget-friendly rooms, whereas lodgings in non-urban areas farther inland tend to be pricier retreats making the most of the scenery and seclusion.
