Okinawa always brings people the lovely imagine of a blue clear ocean. Many tourists both from within and outside the country visit Okinawa every year to enjoy the time in the water.

With its iconic elephant’s trunk-shaped cliff, Cape Manza is a famous scenic spot in Okinawa. In the 18th century, Sho Kei, a Ryukyu king, visited Cape Manza and commented that 10,000 people should sit in the open area near the cliffs and admire the cape’s beauty.
