Marvelous View of Haneji Inland Sea, “Matsushima in Okinawa” from “Arashiyama Observatory Deck” in Nago

“Arashiyama Observation Deck” in Nago City in the northern part of mainland Okinawa is one of “the eight most beautiful scenic places in Okinawa.”  Landscape which you can view from here has been called as “Matsushima in Okinawa” or “Seto Inland Sea in Okinawa.”

The observation deck is located near Orion Arashiyama Golf Club, along the road surrounded by the fields.  If you don’t pay attention, you might miss it.  However, after going up stairs, you will be surprised to find an amazingly beautiful landscape stretching out before you. 

This is the view I am talking about!

The sea sandwiched between Motobu Peninsula and Yagaji Island is called Haneji Inland Sea, where small uninhabited islands are scattered. 

It is a picturesque place in the north designated part of the Okinawa Seashore Quasi National Park and Game Reserve.  Sometimes a ship passes slowly in the calm sea. 

To the left, you can see Warumi Ohashi Bridge.

Beyond Ykachi Island at the center, you can find Kouri Island , where Kouri Ocean Tower stands.  No matter which direction you look at the landscapes, you feel comfort by sceneries of blue and green. 

When I came here for the first time, I had not expected such a small observation deck, but I was really amazed by the breathtaking beauty of the landscapes opening up beyond that.  This is a very interesting gap. (LOL)

Comfortably transparent vast ocean is marvelous, but also the ocean view with floating small islands, which provides a nostalgia atmosphere, is lovely!  This is the best-kept secret view spot in the north which I would like you to stop by on a blue sky day.
