Senaga Island (Senagajima)

It is said to be the first island in Tomigusuku where a colony was formed, and where Senaga Gusuku (castle) used to be in place. Since old times, it has been known as a scenic island of God, or the island of religion, where youngsters sang and played on the beach at night, and couples nurtured their love at a legendary power spot called Kodakaraiwa.

Though the appearance of the island has unfortunately changed after the war since being occupied by U.S. military base, it still attracts people today as a relaxing island to enjoy the sunset, to drive and to date, and as a mecca on island for baseball. “Senagajima Onsen Hotel”, which has a natural hot spring bath, has become a new landmark. Also, the island forms the setting of “Kumiodori”, UNESCO’s inntangible cultural heritage.

Manko, Manko Water Bird & Wetland Center

Manko, Manko Water Bird & Wetland Center
Manko, unlike general lakes, is brackish water just at sea level designated as the wildlife sanctuary due to it being a relaying point for many migratory birds. Also, the wetland, registered under the Ramsar Convention in 1999, is a rare place where numerous water birds can be observed and where mangrove lushly grows, despite being located in the middle of the urban area.

Also, Manko is said to be the birthplace of haarii (traditional boat race), and one theory holds that haarii first began about 600 years ago when the owner of the Nakagusuku Castle built a dragon boat and circled the Manko on it by imitating what he saw in China where he went as a foreign student.
