VIDEO| Take in the beauty surrounding Okinawa's 'turtle rock'

Stripes Okinawa

Let’s visit Kaamiijii on Urasoe City’s west coast. This huge rock is named after the Okinawan dialect for “turtle rock.” Enjoy views of the surrounding waters from the top of Kaamiijii. In the spring these shallow waters are home to aasa, a green algae that goes through vibrant color gradations. Find this relaxing spot within walking distance from San-A Parco City and Camp Kinser. Enjoy the scenic beauty that this unique spot presents.
