Day Trip from Okinawa: Which is better- Kerama or Nago?

We're taking a 3-day/2-night trip to Okinawa, and would like to see a different part of the city besides the Naha too.

Just curious if those who've been would recommend a ferry trip to Kerama Islands (thinking of Tokashiki: http://www.vill.tokashiki.okinawa.jp/en/index.htm) or going up to Nago and the mountains?

Thank you!

I have been to Nago once before. It's ok, an easy drive from central Okinawa on the expressway. Not much in the town itself, not very attractive. A huge McDonald's dominates the crossroads.

The area on the east side of Nago is the planned relocation area for Futenma air base, and consequently more of Okinawa' s beautiful coast will be ruined. Nothing happening yet.
