    The chura we'd sea-water aquarium or any other attractions. Natural Beach, and areas look at look at the revival of the Okinawa Prefecture stands together. I think you only in Japan. If more than half the time you can get.

    It is a missing corner, athletic grounds, in addition to various museums children exercise for body very much, even all day long.  Museum, Maritime Museum, botanical gardens, and the designated days in constant may be free of charge. It is convenient to use when you're tired of bus routes around the Park and walk. But a route destination routes are a lot too, so confirmation is required.

    Love this place! Tons of fun yet super affordable. Great place to just spend the whole day with family. The staff are also super friendly and helpful. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Also, bring a change of clothes for the kids because they have a pretty cool splash pad.

    If you love animals you are gonna leave this place depressed. Manatees swim in a tiney tank, and female ones in even smaller. Dolphins are in small tanks, turtles even smaller. It was horrible The poor turtle in that pic didnt even have a place to rest. I can't believe this is ok. Did not expect to see that. The rest of the park was fine, and it would be just fine without the poor animals. What sadder is that the freedom is few meters away.

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.
