Cape Zanpa is located in Yomitan Village in the central part of mainland Okinawa. The main attraction here is the 30 meter tall lighthouse that is standing on the 2 km long cape.
Cape Zanpa is one of the first places the American military arrived at during the battle of Okinawa. Today it is a beautiful spot where you can experience the quite unique Okinawan scenery. It is possible to enter and get to the top of the lighthouse for a small fee (200 yen).
There is also a recreational area next to the light house. Here you can buy souvenirs and snacks, or you can visit the petting zoo. They also sell food for the animals for 100 yen.
If you are going by car, take route 58 north to Yomitan Village and turn left on route 6. There is a Docomo Shop at the crossing. Continue on route 6 for about 9 km and after passing Zanpa Beach, Cape Zanpa will be on your left. Pictures: © Okinawa Convention & Visitors Bureau
