One of my favorite trips in Okinawa is the visit to the Valley of Gangala. It caught quite a stir among my friends because of a, for lack of a better word, “unique rock formation”. However, just right across the valley is the famous Okinawa World, a theme park that features things local. It is equally worth the visit and equally my favorite as well, taking pride in its Habu Park, a small village and shops reminiscent of the old Okinawa, and the Gyokusendyo Cave.
The theme park’s main attraction and unbelievably an amazing work of nature is the Gyokusendo. It is a 5000 meter long cave that was formed approximately 300,000 years ago. It is well and beautifully lit with pathways over a river that flows continuously.
Take Highway 58 into Naha City and then take Highway 329 going east. Next, go south on Highway 507 and then turn onto Highway 131.
