Great views of all of Okinawa. Definitely go to top of lighthouse... It is worth the 99 stairs to climb.

Great view of the cliffs and the lighthouse, however it would have been better if there were signs to guide tourists to the cape.

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.

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.

Yes sure. My friend and I took bus all our trip 7 days. Recommended you to plan where you would like to go and ask bus ticket counter at domestic airport. It s easy. Enjoy 😊
