Island Nature / Park
Famous for its fresh-from-the-sea tempura, Ojima Island enchants visitors with its relaxed atmosphere and picturesque setting. Walk across the bridge linking the mainland with this small island, where anglers repair their boats and stretch their nets out to dry. Take a walk along the rocky beaches with scenic views of the ocean, and be sure to explore the island's narrow streets to gain a glimpse of lush private gardens, serving the locals as their own secret hideaways. Put Ojima Island into our Nanjo family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Nanjo.

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.
