Motobu-cho, Kunigami-gun, Okinawa Prefecture
Sakimotobu is a perfect combination of rural idyll. Verdant semi tropical hills teeming with nature spill down to the aquamarine waters of the ocean. At night you can see the sky awash with stars with the milky way clearly visible.

The house, a modern white cube, sits on elevated ground, with views of the surrounding greenery and the aquamarine waters of the East China Sea.

We were a group of 5 colleagues and stayed at the English Garden Cottage for a few days as a base for our sightseeing of the northern part of Okinawa. The cottage was a good size for us and had comfy beds. Keith is a...More

About the neighborhood
Sakimotobu is a very traditional unspoilt coastal village. It has a wonderful aspect overlooking the East China Sea surrounded by green hills and semi tropical forests. The cottage is on the edge of the village with easy walks around the small lanes and fields. There is a wonderful small river flowing nearby where kids (and adults!) can play, hunt for shrimp or just splash around to cool down in the summer months.

We are a 15 minute drive from the famed Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. There are a whole range of facilities exhibiting the rich history, culture and natural environment of Okinawa many of which are free.

For ocean lovers we are 2 minute drive (10 minute walk) from Sakimotobu beach and 5 minutes from the famed dive and snorkel spot 'Gorilla Chop'.

You can enjoy walking a...

How to get there
Airport: Naha: 43.5 mi
Ferry: Motobu: 1.2 mi
Sakimotobu in the northern region of Motobu on Okinawa's main island, the Cottage is accessed from a lane off the coastal road (449) between Nago City and the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium and Expo Park.

The best way to get around Okinawa, especially in the rural north is by car or private transport. There is ample parking directly in front of the house.

To get to Nago from the airport take the Expressway to Kyoda junction (about 90 minutes - cost Y1,000) or you can follow R58 north all the way to Nago (takes between 120 and 150 minutes). It is a nice drive from Kadena up through Onna Village to Nago on R58 but be advised the section from Naha to Chatan can be extremely congested especially in the afternoon rush hours.

Public transport can be slow and expensive especially in the rural...
