Create an itinerary including Cape Hedo
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.

  • A beautiful ride ( if not too much traffic and good weather ), my only real sunny day when I visited Okinawa in March 22. It is quite a tour, I started from Onna and drove up all the coast to the Cape, can’t really miss it. Street conditions are fine ( beware if rain as the tarmac turns in a slide for bikes !), watch your speed limit as on parts without traffic it is tempting to speed away. There is a larger parking area,restrooms are ok but below standard in Japan, didn’t checkout the food vendors, a old looking restaurant & a street style shed. As I am picky regarding food, pass. Came for the view and as there were only few people I could enjoy it a lot. Beautiful scenery all around. Definitely worth the ride but I wished there were better rest possibilities,only a few benches and not much shade. You can go a different route back but I wasn’t interested in mountains so I rode the coastline back too.
  • Beautiful overlook of northern Okinawa! 270 degree views of the ocean, you can even see the adorable Okinawan Rail viewing point- a giant bird on the cliff side. There are vending machines, a cafe, and restrooms too.
