Nago City, Northern Main Island
Northern Okinawa is called Yambaru. It is a place where they are proud of their natural surroundings. Going farther north, there is a place called Daisekirinzan, locals call it “power spot”. It is said, there you can experience the earth`s energy flowing. One sunny day I hiked there to enjoy nature in the subtropical zone. I found strange shaped rocks, massive stones, and forest and ocean views from the plateau.

The Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium is a popular classic tourist spot in Okinawa!
By using one of the world’s largest water tanks, the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium is famous for boasting the world’s first success in housing and raising multiple whale sharks and giant oceanic manta rays.
The “Chura” of “Churaumi Aquarium” means “beautiful” in Okinawan dialect. As the name suggests, the Churaumi Aquarium strives to faithfully reproduce the beauty of Okinawa’s ocean from the water’s surface to a depth of 700 meters by maintaining light, water quality, transparency, and more as close to nature as possible.
If talking about Ganaha in Nago-City, usually people will think of famous Okinawa agu pork which is one of the localy delicacy in Okinawa.
