If you are happen to be traveling (or living) in Okinawa, and the ocean is still too cold for swimming, then traveling to the north of Okinawa is an ideal place to visit, namely for the world-class aquarium in Mobobu (a peninsula jotting out toward the South China Sea from the Okinawa island) as well as for famous pink cherry flower viewing spots at Yayedake, Nakijin Castle Ruin, and the Nangusuku Hill. You can comfortably visit those places in one day (much nicer if you drive), and the weather is perfect today.
For the detail of the Nangusuku Hill, please scroll down this blog and see some of the photos I posted. I also posted a Google Map to show the direction for the Nangusuku Hill.
There will be no traffic regulation today (Feb. 7, Mon.)
About The Author
Welcome to OKINAWA LOCAL TOUR GUIDE'S BLOG.
This blog is created by a local tour guide born and raised in the northern region of Okinawa island. This lush mountainous area is locally known as Yanbaru, and the name means to the locals as a place to enjoy and appreciate nature.
I write, in a rather freewheeling manner, things I see and hear mainly in the nature-rich region of Okinawa . Okinawa is the southernmost prefecture in Japan. Come and experience this unique resort island in the heart of subtropical climate and blue ocean.
