  • Ferry Naha from Motobu port time sesoko island near went jogging. Sesoko bridge is a small island connected to the distant island better larger and longer in symbol of this area appeared. Scary much. Island is isn't. There was sparse.

  • You can see the sea from the top of the bridge. At one time is pretty crowded, but this was not so.

  • This is the bridge after seeing the Kouri Ohashi bridge across to the West route 505, the then national route 449 is located. Sesoko island and mainland bridge, over the Kouri Ohashi bridge so was close. Bridge visit know that you look at a map. It was a large arch-shaped edge considerably through the higher position, unlike the Kouri Ohashi bridge. Parking is on the left across the bridge, view from the bridge was beautiful. Also had a memorial for the opening of the bridge.

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.
