North of Nago, Okinawa Honto is only scarcely populated and mainly covered by forests and hills. Cape Hedo (ÓË¦, Hedo Misaki) is the island's northernmost tip, offering spectacular views of the cliffy coast.
The less direct approach to Hedo Misaki along the more scenic, less developed eastern coast is recommended due to its beautiful coastal scenery. However, in order to explore the eastern coast, you will need your own transportation, such as a rental car, because there is no scheduled bus service along the eastern coast to Hedo Misaki.
Take highway bus number 111 or 117 from Naha to Nago Bus Terminal (90 minutes, 2100 yen from Naha Bus Center; 105 minutes, 2190 yen from Naha Airport; 1-2 buses/hour), transfer to bus number 67 for Hentona Bus Terminal (60 minutes, 1050 yen, 1-2 buses/hour) and transfer once more to a municipal bus line to Hedo Misaki (40 minutes, 550 yen, 3 buses/day).
