We spent about 2 hours there doing glass blowing (15 mins) + sea salt making (40 mins) + shopping for local produce + enjoying the beautiful sea view. Serene place. My daughters enjoy the experience.

Found Gala Aoiumi from Okinawa's various travel websites (that includes downloadable coupons for discounts on activities and snacks). Because we were taking public transportation, I wanted to make sure it was worth the walk from the bus station. At the time there wasn't much written...More

the place gives good view on the ocean and shore. not too much to do with the salt making in fact, just a very small scale facility is show-cased. it carries ceramic-making and glass-making workshop, a place you can plan to spend 40-60 mins.
