Point of Interest
“The best sunset spot. On the top of a cliff stands a 30 meter tall lighthouse offering a great opportunity to capture a view of a lifetime. There is also a small fun petting zoo and the largest Shi-shi dog in Okinawa right by the large parking lot. Explore the trails behind the lighthouse as well for some outstanding picturesque views.”
