Cape Hedo, Kunigami-son

Must see · Lookout · Tourist Spot
The northernmost tip of Okinawa Island, Cape Hedo combines far-reaching ocean views and a rocky coastline. Walk along lush green trails that hug the cliffs' edge, gazing over clear blue water crashing against the rocks. Drop a coin in one of the many boxes to pay tribute to the gods of sea and wind, and look for the white stone sculpture of a mythical creature with the body of a fish and the head of a bird. If you're itching to get into the water, you'll find plenty of good spots for snorkeling and scuba diving. Make Cape Hedo part of your personalized Kunigami-son itinerary using our Kunigami-son itinerary maker.

  • 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.....  more »

  • Bit of a drive but if you enjoy driving and seeing sights most tourists won't see then take the drive and keep going to the start of route 58 and continue down to Higashi on 70. As for Hedo itself, the views are spectacular and amenities are improving with a new restaurant and shop being built as we speak.
  • Located at the southern most tip of the main Okinawa island. An ocean view with an extended horizon. Make one feel humble.
