Review of Kouri Ocean Tower

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/03/06 Good way to spend an hour or so.
This attraction is managed by the same team as the one at the Pineapple park and Ofuya restaurant, and they have this interesting but gimmicky automated cart ride up the small hill. There’s a small...

Once going up to the ocean tower, via automated cart, you can snap beautiful pictures of the Kouri bridge. At the observatory deck, you could also fantastic view of the bridge and ocean.
Reviewed:2019/11/20 Great views
It’s essentially a very deliberate tourist spot, the ‘exit through the gift shop’ type.

          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.
