Nirai Bridge/Kanai Bridge, Nanjo

3.6
#3 of 12 in Sightseeing in Nanjo
Bridge Tourist Spot
Enjoy sweeping views of the vast Pacific blue from Nirai Bridge/Kanai Bridge. A popular tourist spot, these two bridges standing at 80 m (262 ft) at 180 degrees from each other serve as the main gateway along the coast of Nanjo prefecture. You can see Kudaka Island in the distance on the scenic drive. Be prepared to be dazzled by the view, but keep your wits about you, as the road has a reputation for car crashes. You can’t pull over on the bridge, but you can make use of the small parking spot at the beginning of the structure. Use our Nanjo vacation builder to arrange your visit to Nirai Bridge/Kanai Bridge and other attractions in Nanjo.

  • Great views of the time tunnel. Kinda sad but can't bear to leisurely watch and driving ^ ^; if funeral mitake toward passing through this way is recommended.

  •  Since mountain view are listed in the Guidebook taking Lok, but I was trying to decide that seemed as there was no parking space, drove a beautiful sea. But it honestly is. I like tourist routes.

  • So when you go down on the driver views attention to too much caution is required. May end up going to the niraikanai (heaven or Paradise) as the name of the bridge if the bridge in a downhill curve and step between different cause. This is where you can enjoy superb views as a passenger.

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.
