This attraction is managed by the same team as the one at the Pineapple park and Ofuya restaurant, and they have this interesting but gimmicky automated cart ride up the small hill. There’s a small coral museum and two souvenir shops, both which are nothing too fanciful. The main attraction was the view point up the tower for photo-taking. They also bake some cakes here, but it didn’t really suit my taste. Definitely worth a visit if using the pass.

I went here with my boyfriend. It costs about 800¥ to get in (they only take cash). You get in a little cart that brings you up to the tower. The cart ride provides you with some facts about the island. The seashells in the tower are gorgeous. The gift shop has a wide selection and takes card. The next 3 levels are breathtaking viewing areas. Would recommend !

This is the last place we visited on Day 2 Okinawa trip. After visited Nakinjin Castle Ruins, we drove for 20 min before arriving at Kouri Island. I must say that before you cross the Kouri bridge, you should park your car at the car park before the bridge as that is the best spot to take beautiful pictures of the Kouri bridge.

You can purchase the JTB Enjoy Pass at a discounted price online at klook website which allowed you to visit Churaumi Aquarium plus 4 other places of interest (which include Kouri Ocean Tower). As we have planned to go for more than 4 locations, we decided to pay for the tickets at 800 yen for adults.

It is kinda of interesting as you will be seated at a driverless buggy which bring you to the top level (entrance), and it comes with voice commentary on Ocean Tower in selected languages. We particularly like the observatory tower (topmost level) which has panoramic view of the sea and Kouri bridge. Super windy and very ideal place to catch great picture.

I would say that the admission is pricey but still worth a visit if you are on the island and wish to catch some really nice photos.

956chank さま この度は 古宇利オーシャンタワーへお越しくださいまして 誠にありがとうございました。 カートは自動走行で、古宇利島や施設の説明をしながらタワーの近くまで上がっていきます。 ちょっとした冒険気分でお楽しみいただけましたか? オーシャンタワーの最上階は、古宇利大橋やブルーグラデーションの海を大パノラマの景色で楽しむことができるので、人気の場所です。タワー最上階を気に入っていただけて、とても嬉しく思います。 入園料金につきましては、価格に見合う施設になるよう、コンテンツの開発や内容の充実に努めて参ります。 また沖縄へお越しの際は、是非お立ち寄りください。 ご来館心よりお待ちしています。

Besides 360 breathtaking ocean from the tower, there was also a sea shell musuem in the tower for visitors to see huge collection of sea shell. A good place to visit for everyone if you are visiting Nago area.

kumchinさま この度は、古宇利オーシャンタワーへお越しくださいまして 誠にありがとうございました。 シェルミュージアムは世界中から集めた貝 約1500種類、1万点を展示しています。 色や形が様々あるので、じっくり見ていると時間があっという間に過ぎてしまいます。 昨年11月から デジタルアクアリウムも上映しているので、 より 海の中にいる気分で貝をお楽しみいただけたのではと思います。 タワー最上階からは 大パノラマの景色をお楽しみいただくことができます。 沖縄本島北部エリアの観光地として、お勧めいただき大変ありがとうございます。 より皆さんに楽しんでいただけるような施設づくりに励んで参ります。 次回沖縄へ来る機会があれば、是非またお立ち寄りください。 ご来館心よりお待ちしています。

Our guide directed us to purchase the ticket at a machine within the nearby Lawson. Ticket at the machine cost 720Yen for Ocean Tower rather than the usual price of 800Yen. Tried the pumpkin crossiant at the level 2 of Ocean Tower

The concept of this tower does seem a bit gimicky but it was better than my expectations. Your 800yen ticket gets you a ride in a driverless buggy that comes with some commentary/trivia in your selected language and some nice views of the ocean and bridge. At the top there's a shell museum. In the tower itself you can go right to the top level which is outdoors to get a great view. It was super windy and wet from the recent rain when we were there. Like most attractions there's a gift shop. This gift shop had so many samples of the snacks such as local chinsoke, cookies, chocolate ect (we probably did eat enough to make our ticket worth it). ..they also had some products from the Nago pineapple park. This attraction isn't a must visit but is nice if you're in the area.

This is the second time i had visited this site. Infact, it was the first site duringbthis trip. Some may find that there is nothing much to see except bridge and ocean but it is a nice 2 hour drive from airport. Yes. We rented private car with driver as we arrived at 8am. Instead of waiting and wasting time to check in at 4pm, we went ahead with the private car and we decide the places of interest, starting from north, furthest away from naha. Along the way, we see local houses, factories, restaurants, cemetaries, etc.

The wow moment came when we cross that beautiful bridge. It is not San Francisco or Dragon bridge but it was a long bridge and both sides water and water and more water.
It is just so serene, peaceful, as if we are living busy hectic work life to escape here.
The area is like a small village with small cafes, beach on way in. The ocean tower has a bell at the highest. We each rang 3 times for good luck, prosperity and great health!

Now, we had coffee at one level overlooking the blue ocean. To get up here, take the free auto golfcart..just very unique and fun. Like a snake it wheels itself up...just so cute and fun. Love it!

You start by going into the seashell museum. For a second time, i still like it. But for others may not be interested. Kids may love this place. Then off into sa pastry section. We bought alot of cakes and cookies. For 5k yen, u get a 1k discount or 10 percent...
All of us each bought more than 5k worth of pineapple cakes, salted cookies, pumpkin cakes, etc. Taste very good. Good as gifts. Small box 350yen, Medium 550 yen and Large 800 yen and above. So convenient if you want small boxes. There is a pineapple wine cake that tastes great too.

We did not patronise the restaurant this time. We stayed for 1.5 hour.

Good to visit if you love ocean view.

We happen to visit Ocean Tower without really knowing what to find. After the parking you are invited to take an automatic cart, only fun for children for a very small drive and join the tower overlooking the island.
360 views from the very top (without windows)

The views at the top of the tower was breathtaking. There is a gift shop that makes their pastries and snacks on the spot as well. A good place to spend an hour or two soaking in the amazing sceneries around you. There is a restaurant located there as well for you to sip coffee and have a relaxing morning or afternoon.
