Busena Marine Parkブセナ海中公園

Observatory / Outlook

Busena Marine Park is located at Cape Busena, near Nago City. An underwater observatory has been built in the waters off the cape, providing a 360-degree view of the beautifully colored fish through 24 underwater windows. Glass-bottomed boats depart from the pier near the observatory, enabling visitors to “stroll” through the ocean. Please note that there is an admission charge for the observatory, and there is also a charge for the trips in the glass-bottomed boats (packages combining the two activities at a specially reduced price are available).

Reviewed:2018/12/02 Privilege to be part of the ocean bed - without getting wet!
We had theee generations in our group and found this to be a super great activity. If you are already in Oona - just buy the ticket, drive up, take a shuttle (15min wait tops) or take a 10min walk...

This is as close to snorkelling/scuba diving as you get without getting wet! The underwater observatory extends down to 4metre depth. We saw a good variety of fish (not so much for corals though, but...

Okinawa Main Areas


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.
