In front of the apartment is the south gate of Ocean Expo Park.
And there are restaurants and bars in a walking distance.
For Example:
Kaihoumaru (Sea Food Restaurant, 2mins' walk)
Lecco (a pizza house, 2mins' walk)
Restaurants and Bars in Hotel Mahaina (3mins' walk)
Churaumi Taro (a dining bar with Okinawan Falk Music, 5mins' walk)
Uminiwa (Okinawan Noodle,7mins' walk)
Steak House 88 (14mins' walk)

Churaumi Aquarium is a four-minute drive from the apartment but walking or taking sight-seeing cars to the aquarium through the park is also very nice when it is not too hot.

Sight-seeing cars (100 yen one way, 200 yen a day) starts from the park's botanical garden in front of our apt and take you to Tropical Dream Center, Churaumi Aquarium, Emerald Beach and other places in the park (There are many places to see in the park besides the Aquarium)

There are not many people in the botanical garden around the south gate, so you can walk around or enjoy ground golf (free) just like it is your own garden.

You can also let your children play in Banko Forest (2 mins walk) of the park.

Hotel Mahina Resort (2 mins walk) has pools (2000 yen), and onsen spa(1000 yen) besides bars and restaurants.

Nearby our apartment is a small convenience store (7:00 to 22:00) and Kaihoumaru, a seafood restaurant.

There are no supermarkets within a walking distance but we will take you to a supermarket on the day you arrive if you don't have a car.

A secret, local beach good for snorkeling is a 5-min walk if you take a short cut. (not recommendable for children or after dark)

Bise, one of the few places where the original scenery of Okinawa is still kept, is right next to Emerald Beach.

There are diving shops near our apartment and they will give you a ride to the shop.

Even though our place is convenient enough, if your purpose of traveling is shopping, eating out or having a night out, it is NOT for you. However, if you prefer a slow time walking along the seashore or watching the sunset in the park, our place is YOURS.

During your stay

We live quite far but we will try to give you as much service as we can.

One of the staff is a licensed English tour guide and she can help you make your stay the most exciting.

If our schedule meets, we can tour you around Ocean Expo Park including Churaumi Aquarium.

We will also give you a free ride to the supermarket on the day of your arrival if you don't have a car.

------
Please ask in advance: If you can't rent a car but want to stay longer than 3 nights, a car tour around north part of Okinawa MAY be available. (It is not free but should be much cheaper than hiring a taxi)
