Cape Manzamo, one of the best scenic spots in Okinawa
The 20-meter-high Ryukyu limestone cliff is a park with an expanse of lawn spreading on top. It is said that Ryukyu Kingdom's King Sho Kei once praised the site as a "field worthy for all people to sit on" and the cliff was named for this. On a clear day, the ocean shines brightly stretching to the distant horizon, and the vista at sunset is a sight to behold.
