Nirai Bridge/Kanai Bridge, Nanjo

3.6
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. Take a look at our Nanjo day trip planning website to schedule your visit to Nirai Bridge/Kanai Bridge and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Comes from Naha city, West of the seifa-Utaki to along the way, just before the bridge include locations such as tunnels. Take a photo to pause at the top, we went up to the observation deck, and Guidebook. I think when I went the weather was bad, but the sky is 青kattara very good.

  • Is a very beautiful bridge follows the shoreline overlooking from the hill side of the defense. It is a landscape scale two large bridges, and in the normal lens fit in the picture. At 30 minutes, weather permitting, is where I want to be.

  • Is just a few minutes, but the illegally parked on the side of the road is like a lookout on the bridge from near the parking lot because there is no big brat was not. But the view from the top of the bridge is the best beauty of the curve of the bridge and the blue sea.

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.
