My kids made it to the top in less than five minutes. My 7 year old daughter told me it was really easy (she has been hiking with the neighbors in Okinawa so she has a mental comparison!

A great place to get a 360 view of this amazing place. Good for a visit all time of the day, but especially at sunset. The hike up is not too hard.

We hiked up to the point which proved to be a great destination after a lovely walk from the village we were staying in. Great views and a delightful day.

We walked passed some narrow and shady pathways before reaching the observatory. You definitely enjoy the scenic view from the observatory.

Took a hike up here on a grey day. Very easy going, and safe from traffic. There're free telescopes at the top where you can scope out the neighbouring islands, and even Naha on a clear day (supposedly)

Stunning view to the ocean and nearby beach, especially during the sunset. Well worth the visit any day.

Only a few steps through lush greenery to splendid views overlooking Aharen Beach and the neighbouring cove. The observatory has shelter from the sun...well worth taking a lunch up there.
