  • The park is actually comprised of 3 sections - the cave, the village, and the snake museum. We took so much time exploring the cave & village that we ran out of time to experience the snake museum. Th...  more »
  • By bus from kamiizumi arrive in about 1 hour. Fewer buses bus to columns. The cave is. During the winter season feels like entering a low-temperature sauna. Than I thought long photo shoot you have to jam.

  • The planning line in the Yuquan Cave is clear for a long time, the view of the cave is much the same, if you like the natural scenery of the visitors, will feel the nature of the Olympic wonderful, coupled with different colors of light irradiation, the photo is very good-looking. The Ryukyu King's performance was also very good. It takes a long time to get out of the city.

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.
