It was a nice place to visit. A nice park also for the kids and adults to play. Might be busy since it is free to play.

A nice place on the rugged coast of central Okinawa with a lighthouse that is well worth the climb up its narrow spiral staircase - great views from the top.

東シナ海からの強い西風が吹き付ける、荒々しい雰囲気の岬です。帽子などの身に着けているものは吹き飛ばされる可能性がありますので注意が必要です。穏やかさはほとんど無いもののすっきりした空気が西から運ばれているため、とても気持ちよく周囲を散策出来ます。公園内は丘になっており、起伏はあまりないものの道は狭くゴツゴツしているため、歩きやすい靴で散策した方がよさそうです。 やはり何といっても残波岬からの夕日は格別。遮るものがありませんから、岬の岩場に座ってゆっくり水平線に沈む夕日を眺めるのも、とてもいい思い出になるかもしれません。 Strong westerly wind from the East China Sea is always blowing to this cape.

Beautiful perch to view the ocean. You can stop by the area in under an hour. The cliffs are beautiful, but sharp. Take care and caution climbing on the rocks. There are walking trails, restrooms and a picnic area.

It should be a nice view if it wasn't raining. But it was a refreshing experience and you got a 270 degree sea view. Be prepared for strong wind

We went there on a sunny day, though it was so hot, we enjoy our visit. The view to the ocean is magnificent. You can take very good picture there. Worth to visit during your stay at Okinawa.

I visited there for watching the sunset. However, the weather that day was not too good. But it is still good to walk around the cape and looking at the natural view. Also, the light tower worth to visit. It is a nice place for...More
