Sort of the same with all the sugar cane fields except for some crazy local drivers. They will drive very close to your car and attempt to pass you all the time along with honking at you. Also had to sit in traffic crossing the bridge because some guy was driving a tractor across it really slow.

You drive along the long, recently completed Irabu bridge to get here. Some good spots to visit on the island are the Makiyama observatory, shaped liked the grey-faced buzzard, the two ponds almost next to each other at Tooriiike,and finally the beach at Sawada-no-hama with all the rock jutting out of the water.
