This temple is quite nice but neither original nor worth to travel here to see it (except for religious purpose, of course). If you are in the vicinity go there.

The Shinto shrine is a small attraction in the area. It is small and relatively quiet. It is worth visiting only if you are in the vicinity. Visit the Naminoue Beach below the shrine.

This shrine is beautiful and right next to the beach. Too bad there isn't really anything to do in the area, mostly residential and pretty much deserted in the winter

Make a wish, it works... :) And it's right next to a great city beach of the same name so you can make a day of it! Wishing well, insert coins. Typical and beautiful Shrine and gardens. Many ceremonies so be courteous if someone is getting married! My favourite Shrine so far in Okinawa.

The shrine sits above a very scenic hill next to the famous beach of the same name. Great shrine for shooting outside, but be mindful when you go in.
