Located at the northernmost tip of Okinawa, it is made up of cliffs of coral. On sunny days it is a picturesque spot where you will be able to command a view of Yoron Island. In 1972 during the Showa period, on the occasion of the return of Okinawa to the Japanese, a monument “sokoku fukki tousou ishibumi” (Return to Motherland conflict monument) was built. Located on the northern side of the cape Hedo dome is a limestone cave in the sea which is said to have formed approximately 20,000 years ago. It is known as a great diving spot.

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.
