    ここにうかがうのは3度目です。 辺戸岬から東海岸沿いの道路を南下するとここにたどりつきます。 併設してる食事処(東ぬ浜)は観光客ではなく地元民に愛用されてます。 店舗自体は小規模で地元で獲れた野菜やフルーツ、とうがらしなどが売られてます。 目の前が海なので堤防を登って海を眺めると爽快な気分になります。 ドライブ途中の休憩スポットとしての利用価値大な施設です。

Okinawa Areas

around-area-map

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
