While there are still some locations to add to this list, these are what Ive covered pretty well in the last year, will continue to add to this post as time goes on! Do comment if you know of more gem spots I must see!
Zakimi Castle- Yomitan
Gorgeous ancient castle ruins with wooded tree area and ocean views at the top.
This location is my absolute favorite for its variety. You’ve got beach, a castle ruin that extends out into the water, a Japanese looking red hut, cliffs, rocks, greenery, and even country fields. Its hard to believe that’s all at one location, but here’s the pictures to prove it.
This dreamy overtly Japanese location shows off all the wonderful Japanese architecture. This place does have a small entry fee of a couple hundred yen, but is a small circular park that is very doable with younger kids and offers a perfect treat of feeding koi fish following your photoshoot!
Nakagusuku Castle- Uruma
A beautiful ancient castle with stunning views and wonderful rocks to climb. This location is a bit more of hike, with lots of hills but its well worth the climb.
Toguchi Beach- Yomitan
Baba Park- Sunabe
