Board your motorcoach and explore eastern Miyako Island. Begin with a photo stop at beautiful Higashi Henna Cape, designated as a National Historic, Scenic and Natural Monument and is one of the most breathtaking spots in all of Okinawa. Take in the picture-perfect vistas and lilies that bloom in the early spring.
Ride on a semi-submersible vessel, the Sea-Sky Hakuai, to observe the underwater world of the island, where the seawater is extremely clear. Enjoy the natural beauty and bounty of the island.
Pause for lunch at a local restaurant before heading to a Utopia farm to observe how they grow fruits and plant flowers.
Your last stop is at the Taragawa Awamori Brewery -- quite famous in Miyakojima. Here, you will learn how to make sake -- Japanese rice wine -- and sample some for the purpose of quality control.
Return to the pier.
