Hedo Misaki (Cape Hedo) / Okinawa Main Island

The main approach to Cape Misaki is by route 58 along the western coast, where, halfway between Nago and the cape, there is a nice hiking trail to the Hiji Waterfall (about 30-40 minutes one way, 200 Yen admission to the trail) and a JAL resort hotel around Okuma Beach.
