  • December early with family came here just good blow, wave dong 洶 pour, strong surging! such as time and force may be (the tower must climb the 99-level staircase OH) absolutely want to board the tower, far from the sea view!

  • The photos you see in the travel book are very strong and look forward to it, but actually it is not so shocking. On the other hand, the sea is so big that it is a bit uncomfortable, the other floor is not very good to go, wearing sandals may be careful to scratch the tourists.

  • It was splashing when thinking the rain so the water I was walking from the parking lot. Because it was a windy day sea in rough so powerful and is awesome! Foreign visitors were excited.

Where to stay in Yomitan-son

Many visitors to Yomitan-son are exclusively interested in its coastline, so developers have largely pandered to such wishes. You'll find a number of resorts, either on the coast directly west of the town center, or north and south along the shoreline. Looking out across beaches and with ample grounds for pools, restaurants, and the like, they represent the luxury options in town. Head inland a little and you'll find some more humble offerings, including guesthouses and simpler hotels.
