A 15-minute drive from Miyako Airport. Situated on the northwestern side of Miyako-jima Island, visitors to this cape can take in emerald green ocean and forest and deep blue skies. Three huge white wind turbines stand in a row and blend in with the surrounding scenery. From an observatory on the cape, visitors can enjoy a sweeping view of Ikema Ohashi Bridge, Ikema Island to the north, Irabu Island to the west, and Ogami Island to the east. The wind turbine power generation is a part of the Enetopia concept and the unique scenery created by the three turbines standing in a line has become a symbol of the Nishihenna Cape. Visitors can delight in the local scenery from the observatory and take a leisurely stroll to the tip of the cape using a walking path which traverses the area.

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.
