Great place to watch the sunset. I like taking pictures so I got there early to take daytime pictures as well. I didn't go in the lighthouse, it seemed a little crowded. Easy to get to. Definitely worth doing, especially to see the sunset.

One of my favorite places on the island of Okinawa, Japan. It has breathtaking views and gentle sea spray on your face in the breeze is just what life is all about. I sat here for an hour or so just relaxing in no hurry...More

Great walking area with glorious views. My children enjoyed the nearby play area and I enjoyed the beach and the walk along the coast.

Breathtaking cliff scenery and furious waves made our experience an unforgettable one. We went on a particularly windy day which made for an even more dramatic experience.

Did not go up the light house as you need to pay to go up, but the surrounding area has great views too. The waves crashing on the rocks are amazing photo places. There are some large boulders moved by typhoon in the past.
