#3 of 10 in Parks in Nanjo
Island Nature / Park
Sometimes referred to as “"the island of the God,"” folklore says that the god Amamikiyo descended on the heavenly Kudakajima Island and introduced multi-grains essential for life. Arriving at the ferry port, you can peruse some gift shops and grab a bite to eat, including the opportunity to sample a local delicacy, the deadly seasnake (hand-captured by the islanders). Consider hiring a bike at the port, a good way to get around the island, but be aware that some areas are sacred and you won't be able to set foot there. Take a map from the ferry to identify the forbidden areas. Put Kudakajima Island at the forefront of your travel plans using our Nanjo vacation generator.

  • We went by bus and ferry from Naha. Aboard the first bus 9:00 10 o'clock ferry and rent a bicycle for two hours 13 was back in time hisataka Island departing from ferry and was quite a flap! If you have spare time, playing on the beach, fishing laid-back island life to lead, I think. Which is nice because you can feel the nature away from Naha. Recommend diving because the next want to see the sky and sea.

  • We came to eat Tempura OU island is famous. In front of the bridge shop for example. Past lunch it was tourists. Local residents? Looks like people are buying large quantities is the flourishing Buri. Fill out the purchase order while standing in the first. Give the paper comes in turn, and accounting. I thought the idea maybe even a little time to lose. (Listening to order every time because there are many foreigners quite hours from) the price of the most with one 65 Yen also wallet-friendly. Shops in the main two women doing keep fried deep in one, is of another order to accounting. Even the fresh because there shop opposite the car park, next to the table. I no longer do with Arthur, mozuku seaweed, fish was allowed. And poker and the fried thing it was. I think fish is tuna. Taste is delicious, even in the mugshot is understood. I must repeat because there were so many things you want to try any other vowed. An error of notice does not take pictures from how I finished eating it. So pictures please refer to what's in other people's comments. I'm sorry (́Д ') y--~ ~ the size of it made around the island by car 5 minutes if it is. Also has some Tempura shop along the road, where there's 人集ri in its own way.

Where to stay in Nanjo

Like in most cities in Okinawa, Nanjo offers a contrast of basic lodgings and expensive, fancy resorts. Hotels tend follow the coastline south and east of Nanjo, with luxurious options perched on the hilltop above the city offering views of Nakagusuku Bay. Bed & breakfast-type pensions are the most common mid-range options, but you can also find inexpensive "ryokan" (traditional guesthouses) close to the beach. Inexpensive guesthouses can be found on Ojima Island, just off the coast and accessible via bridge.
