Where to stay in Nakijin-son

You don't need to stay in Nakijin-son to enjoy its attractions, and many choose not to, given the village's modest size and relative lack of accommodations. If you do stay in town, choose from a couple of beachfront hotels and inland guesthouses, with mid-range and budget options. Alternatively, the fairly large town of Motobu to the west offers a far wider choice of lodgings, including luxury resorts, high-rise hotels, and budget hostels.
