Hedo Point

Hedo Point

Area

Hedo Point is the northern tip of Okinawa Island. The tempestuous waves of the Pacific Ocean and East China Sea dash against its cliffs, throwing spray high into the air. On a clear day you can see Yoron Island off on the horizon. During the campaign for reversion to Japan, people used to light bonfires at this cape. A marker commemorating their struggle to return to the Mother Country is erected here now. Along with a lineup of restaurants, snack shops and souvenir stands, there is a museum with a collection of photos and documents relating to the reversion.
