I think you refer Kaichu Road in Uruma on Day 9.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Revie…

We did driving there last year far to Ikeijima Island. There's Umi-no Eki (Sea Station) building on the bridge, which has gift shop and a restaurant. When you pass Umi-no Eki, dining place is not many. The beach in Ikijima Island was beautiful.

Mumofsss,

There're castle ruins and beaches in Uruma. We drove from Naha and the drive from Kaichu Road to Ikeijima was longer than we had thought. We had lunch there and headed to Kadena-cho.

We visited MIchi no Eki (Road Station) Kadena on our way to Chatan American Village.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Revie…

The road station is adjacent to US Kadena Air Base and military aircraft take-off and landing can be seen from rooftop observation deck if they do on the date. Unfortunately, there were none while we were there, but there were group tourists from mainland China for the same purpose as ours. Since you have already plan to visit American Village, you can add AEON Mall Rycom, which is large one-stop shopping and dining place.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Revie…

You can reach there by driving 30 - 40 minutes.

Ok, saw this late and I'm guessing you're already here but up north.

Forest adventure would be good but it's in Onna: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Revie…

In Nago Neo Park might be a family option: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Revie…

In Okinawa city area not great but a maybe would be the Botanical Gardens and/or kids zoo:

In Nanjo since you are going to Peace Park and mentioned Gangala (interesting but small) right next to Gangala is Okinawa World: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Revie…

Put this all up quickly & on the fly...

Just remembered another spot but don't know if you want to go all the way up north to Kunigami but if you do this place is interesting.

Hi,

I see you have planned for swimming and snorkelling. May I know if the temperature is still bearable and how are you dressed for swimming in the winter weather? Thanks.
