This is a small grassy area with walk-paths overlooking the East China Sea. Although it is relatively small, one can take many different pictures. Of course, the most attractive is the rock formation in the shape of an elephant, but not the only spot...you can often see small sailboats and the two small rocks close to the beach with a... More

We weren't too sure why but the evening that we went to Cape Manza was crowded with tourists! But that didn't stop us from enjoying the cape! Scenery was beautiful and we managed to capture sunset at the Cape. Perhaps we would've enjoyed it more if it weren't so crowded!

Thank See L

Quite a magnificent view but I didn't visit any other cape so not sure how this compares. Definitely recommended as a stop on the way to Churaumi Aquarium.

We were a bit disappointed as it was drizzling when we visited this place. Further, it was really just this cliff and the visit did not last >10 mins...

A story says that 10k people can sit here with Elephant nose. That's nothing less and more. I rather recommend Cape Hedo instead

We came around this place during the sunset hours and it was fantastic. The shops were closing but the view is amazing. However, beware of the throngs of tourists with selfie sticks who are too absorbed into getting a perfect picture that they tend to stick around the few perfect spots longer than welcome.

This place has very strong winds, I guessed same as any other Capes in Okinawa. Comparing to Cape Hedo and Cape Manza, this place is most crowded with tourists, so much I had to wait to take pictures. View is beautiful too, though I find Cape Hedo Observatory better.

I must say that the view is beautiful but because it was too windy, there is nothing one can really do except to complete the pathway. To pay credit to mother nature, even my 3year old son can recognise it is that of a elephant.

Small site where the U-shape track is less than 500m. We visited in the afternoon and the wind was blowing so hard that standing still to take photos was difficult. Of course this created wind chill so wearing wind breaker is essential. I guessed main attraction is the 'elephant' cliff. There were 2 rows of stores selling local and Japanese... More

I had gone there during sunset and it was very crowded. While the sunset view is a beautiful set to hold with the sunlight casted upon the elephant-shaped rock, the rock doesn't look very clear when you take a picture of it. I find the place too crowded to my liking and you can explore it within half an hour.... More
