Hello, I’m AYANA( @ayananotabi).
Most of you are already interested in Okinawa.As you all know, there are many attractive islands in Okinawa.
This time, we will introduce recommended spots mainly at resort hotels called “Imurabushi” in Obama Island.Yes, the site is so large that you can fully enjoy Obama Island if you stay at this hotel!
What is Obama Island?
- 25-30 minutes one way by high-speed boat from Ishigaki Island ferry terminal
- The stage of NHK’s Morning Dora “Chura-san”
- Sugar Road, a long-lasting sugar cane field, is also a popular tourist attraction.
- It operates at a pace of one hour, so if you leave early in the morning, you can visit on a day trip.
However, it is still recommended to stay in the place to fully enjoy the island.
Access to Imurubushi
A free shuttle bus will be available for guests.It takes about 5 minutes from the ferry terminal, so you can rest assured even if you have a lot of luggage.All regular flights will pick you up at the arrival time, so you don’t have to make a reservation in advance.
There is such a signboard in the town, too.I can’t see the right side a little bit, but… This is Obama Port, isn’t it?Go straight down this road to the famous Sugar Road.
The scenery which should be called THE Okinawa is here.No matter where you cut it, it will be a picture of Okinawa…!In order to get around the island, it is recommended to travel by bicycle.There are not so many places that are up and down, but I chose an electric bicycle.If you are not confident in your physical strength, choose an electric bicycle.
After arriving at the i-murubushi, you can also rent-a-bicycles without the need to make a reservation in advance.It is also recommended to leave your luggage at the hotel and then go cycling if the weather is nice.
As you get closer to the hotel, you’ll be greeted by such a big sign.Because of the vast site, it is quite a distance from this signboard to the entrance of the hotel.There is no problem at all when arriving by shuttle bus, but when I came back after cycling around the island, I thought, “Hi, it’s too wide…”The voice of the heart leaked.Now it’s time to arrive at Meurubushi!
On site like a theme park
The Imurubushi consists of several guest room buildings with Okinawan-like names such as “Deigo” and “Teyada”.There are changes in the building and price depending on the grade of the room, but I think you will be very satisfied with any class.
The room where I stayed this time is here.
In fact, there was an incredible heavy rain on the day of arrival, and the weather was not very like cycling, so on the day of arrival, we were relaxing in this spacious room.
Even though I usually want to go out when I go on a trip, I was so satisfied that I wanted to enjoy a hotel stay at Imurubushi.
By the way, the site of Imubushi is about 400,000 m2!It is too large, so rental carts and bicycles are essential to get around the premises.The day after the arrival day, it was fine weather that changed from the weather of the previous day, so we went around the premises immediately.
When I thought that I could hear a voice from somewhere, it was a child goat.By the way, there are other cows and turtles, and it’s like petit zoo.All of these animals are gathered in a place called “Animal Contact Plaza”, so please stop by.
After parting from the animals, I continued to run the rental cart and found a fancy beach terrace.There seems to be a person who does the wedding here, too.It’s going to be a memory of a lifetime!
There are a lot of spots that make you want to take pictures without thinking.
There is also a photo spot like this.
There is also a “sea cafe” where you can spend time while looking at the sea with spectacular views.What a night it’s going to be a “starry sky cafe”!Obama Island is also famous as a place where you can observe the starry sky with spectacular views.Unfortunately, the timing I visited was cloudy and I couldn’t see the starry sky, but it is one of the recommended sightseeing on Obama Island that I would like you to see.
Here is the scenic spot.You can take the best photos while looking at Obama Blue.
And what I felt was wonderful that “recommended camera position” was presented to all photo spots in Imurubushi.The place where it is possible to take a picture thoroughly if it takes a picture from here is shown neatly.
There is also a stand where you can put a camera or mobile phone, so you can take a perfect photo even if there is no one nearby.
The resort stay in Obama Island is decided by the imubushi.
How was the stay at Imuurubushi in Obama Island?This time, I was able to introduce only a few photos, but you can fully enjoy the charm of Obama Island just by staying in The Imuurubushi.
When you visit Obama Island by all means, please visit Imurubushi!
