Create an itinerary including Daisekirinzan
Step on the first land to emerge from the depths of the ocean at Daisekirinzan, the northern tip of Okinawa. Dated at 200 million years old, this ancient piece of land boasts lush tropical fauna, punctuated by striking rock formations reminiscent of Godzilla's spined back. Four well-marked hiking trails around the park take you through various parts of the landscape. The shortest, a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk, leads you 600 m (1,968.5 ft) through forests of banyan trees. The other trails range in length up to 1.1 km (0.6 mi), and take you across the strange rock formations and to viewing points high above the coast--expect some modest climbing. Wear sturdy shoes and bring along some water. A cafe and facilities at the trailhead let you rest and refresh after exploring this evocative landscape. Put Daisekirinzan on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kunigami-son route planner.

  • Daisekirinzan is definitely worth a visit, especially if visiting Cape Hedo. Our phone guided us directly to the parking lot no issues and there was a huge parking spot. There is an entrance fee...

  • Visited with my elderly parents. There's a 600 metres wheel chair friendly route so it was managable for my parents. Along that route, there's a pavilion where my parents could rest while I explored.....  more

  • Well manicured trails and pretty rock formations. The banyan tree was the highlight for me. You must take a bus up to the summit even though it is definitely walkable. The price is a bit steep at 1200 yen but definitely worth seeing once. Map says it would take about 2 hours to do all trails but we spent about 1 hour and we took our time
  • This was a great place to take my 3 year old and 2 year old. Not to difficult but adventurous enough for everyone. Beware of giant spiders
