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.

  • Very interesting museum. At the entrance you can see the double canoe that was reconstructed by Tahitians. You can learn the wisdom and courage of the people who sailed across the vast seas. Housing, food, fishing, clothing etc are on display. Y170 for high school and above, Y50 for elementary/Jr.high. Under 6 yrs old is free.
  • 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.
  • Free screening of the video please! Related video report by so impressed!
