Sandy beaches, sugarcane and ancient ruins

The battle of Okinawa was fought here

How to Get There

The best way to get around the area is by car.

Take Route 331 south and turn right onto Route 3. Then follow the signs, which will guide you along the unnamed roads to the cape. In light traffic, it takes about 40 minutes. To access Okinawa from Japan's major cities, fly into Naha Airport.

Step back in history

The Battle of Okinawa wreaked its worst damage in this part of the mainland, and as you explore you'll see a great number of memorials and other reminders of the war. There are also ancient castles from earlier times, some in ruins and some restored to their former majesty.

Castle in the sand

Gushikawa Castle was built into the cliffs by the lord of Kume Island in the 15th century, but now lies in ruins, half reclaimed by the sand and sea. At the southernmost point of the main island, looking out over the Pacific Ocean with the East China Sea to the west, you can see a stunning view of the Gushikawa Castle ruins.

The sweetest crop

Sugarcane has long been cultivated in Okinawa and it is the main crop of the islands. It is known as uuji in the Okinawan language. Children in Okinawa sometimes snack on raw sugar cane, but sugarcane juice is freely available.
