Once you get out of the city it is a lovely drive up to the cape, with meandering roads along the cost and little traffic ( we did this on a Friday - so not sure about the weekend traffic). Lots of tunnels through the hills and the vegetation is thick and green. The Cape is lovely watching the waves crash against the shore, really enjoyed the journey.

Such a beautiful area. I made the drive to Cape Hedo over the weekend and loved every minutes of it. I stopped at the national park before making my way to Cape Hedo. It wasn't to crowded for being a Saturday afternoon. On a clear day, you get breath taking views of the cliffs and ocean. The water was a beautiful turquoise color. There were a few trails around the cliffs that are walkable, I would say be careful as it can be windy here and the rocks are not the easiest to walk on. There are some facilities at the parking lot to include an information center, restroom, and small outdoor restaurant. There are so many attractions in the area to include beaches. Definitely plan for a full day adventure when visiting Cape Hedo.

The route to and fro Cape Hedo is beautiful with breathtaking views of the sea. Once at the cape, the view is quite majestic with the South China Sea and the Pacific Ocean meeting. Colours of the sea was wonderful and as we were there when there was strong winds, the sea was quite wild.

Easiet way to get to Cape Hedo would be by car. Its about a 2.5 hour drive if you head straight from Naha International Airport, which was what we did. I thought the most efficient itinerary was to shoot straight to the northern most point of Okinawa before making our way back down over the days.

There is a small building at Cape Hedo which houses a restaurant and toilets. Otherwise it feels pretty isolated even though there are other attractions nearby.

Nearby Daisekirinzan, and this is probably the best viewpoint of a cape in Okinawa island, with views of the east and west, where the East China Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. Some nice and free photo taking opportunity with some food stores.

getting to the cape takes you along amazing roads, you can start off on the east coast and then cross over, some great sites along the way, however once you make it to the cape the views are incredible, I went on a dull day and the place was empty, literally I had the place to myself, I didn't eat there but I did see 2 places open.

Amaazzziinnnggggg place to go over! Best way is to drive over as i noticed bus stops along the way but not a single bus heading over. Even just by driving, its at least a 2 hour drive from Chatan that is assuming you have no stops or breaks. But the roads driving there provide beautiful coastal sceneries. Plenty of stops along the way with restrooms and restaurants. At Cape Hedo itself, observation deck is nice with a cafe there but best is to go to the edge of it. Possible to climb to the very peak but you got to be sure footed as it wasnt easy! Northenmost point of Okinawa where East Chin Sea meets Pacific Ocean!

Cape Hedo is the northernmost point of the island. There are breathtaking views and a picturesque scenery. Cape Hedo also houses several gorgeous monuments. The main
monument was erected in 1972 to commemorate Okinawa’s return to Japanese sovereignty. Cape Hedo overlooks both south China sea and Pacific Ocean. Combine this trip with a visit to Daisekirinzan for a fun filled afternoon.

Felt great to be able to stand at the most northern tip of Okinawa to enjoy a magnificence sea view. Getting there was relatively easy after visiting Daisekirinzan. Although we spent just half an hour there, we fully enjoyed the view and the breeze.

Cape Hedo is the northernmost point on mainland Okinawa and is located within Kunigami Village. It overlooks both the South China Sea to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east, thus making it a great vantage point. On a particularly clear day, the island of Yoron in Kagoshima Prefecture can be seen on the horizon.

As well as the outstanding natural beauty, Cape Hedo is also home to several monuments. The main one was erected in 1972 to commemorate Okinawa’s return to Japanese sovereignty.

Don't come all the way here just for this cape but combine it with a trip to the nearby Daisekirinzan and you will have yourself a pretty rewarding day.

This is the first place on my itinerary on my Day 3. Left my apartment at 7.30 am and it was a long drive and reach Cape Hedo at 8.45 am. There were nobody at the site and we took many beautiful photos. Superb view as you catch cliff, onshore waves, unique rocks and wonderful small garden and observatory deck.

I would strongly recommend to visit this place in the early morning before the crowd started to build up. It is also recommended to follow with a visit to Yambaru National Park Daisekirinzan which is only 6 min drive from Cape Hedo, also if time permits add Okinawa Rail Observatory Deck after that.
