Okinawa, Japan Trip 2020 - Day 3 - Umikaji Terrace Senagajima (Travelled in January 2020)

After breakfast, we took the monorail train to Akamine Monorail Station. There is a shuttle bus from the Akamine Monorail Station to Umikaji Terrace Senagajima at every 30 minutes from 8:30 to 21:00. (Need pay 200yen). Once exit from the monorail, there's sign to direct to the shuttle bus. The bus stop is just below the bridge facing the road.

Need to pay exact fare but if dont have exact fare, can always change the notes with the driver before dropping the note to the box. Once drop to the box, there's no change. The ride is about 15 to 20 minutes.

The "Senagajima Umikajiterasu", is a commercial facility to expand the slopes adjacent to the Senagajima west coast of about 15 minutes by car from Naha Airport. Umikaji Terrace features shops, ranging from alfresco restaurants serving local favorites to Made in Okinawa accessories and souvenirs.

These hammocks are favourites with customers, need to patronize the cafe to be able to use them.

Umikaji Terrace is a great place to watch sunset and planes landing and flying off as it is near the airport. Besides commercial planes, we could view military planes like fighter planes and chinook too cause the military airport is just beside the international airport and they share the same runway.

The place where we alight from the shuttle bus is also the place to board the bus back to AKamine station or to the airport. We decided to go to the airport to board the bus to premium outlet. The bus fare from Umikaji Terrace to airport is 300 yen. Please let the driver know your destination on boarding.
