    After climbing the Kouri interest Ocean Tower Island look around by car. The storm had taken heart lock charm on. Very confusing where to look on the net and we had had given up, sign out, it just took the plunge. Rattle and the way the parking fee parking ¥ 300, 400, 500 yen. Heart lock charm on to nearest 500 yen parking. I was a parking lot for 400 Yen. Until the heart lock charm on the shaky way categorisation. There was lending the mock Crocs sandals or heels. Not many people are swimming, and quite a lot of people. But he was so cute and swimming tropical fish through. You could rent a water wash the feet and return to the parking lot, taking pictures. Parking, and comfortable.

    2, Buri's second visit. When I first saw "this sea of Okinawa's-" that after seeing the Miyako Island, but became fascinated by the unique beautiful gradient, then visit the island and outlying islands again to say. Inspirational too has a good eye for what is not. But I'm a beautiful beautiful ~.

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.
