The Okinawa rail Observatory with a height of 11.5 m is located on the cliff at the foot of the rocky mountain of Ashimui near Cape Hedo at the northern end of the main island of Okinawa. From the observatory, a 360-degree panorama overlooks the subtropical forest and open ocean. The observatory is impressively realistic and enormous reproduction of the village bird Okinawa rail called Yanbaru Quina.
The route to the observatory is difficult, so I would like to explain the route from the parking lot at Cape Hedo. However, it is not recommended for those who are not good at maneuvering the vehicle because the road is narrow and there are sharp turns.
If you follow along the road, it will merge with Route 58.
