PARKING and DIRECTIONS:
The Rest & Relax Café has some space for cars. If full… the countryside is just nearby…
If coming from Naha follow the route 329 until it meets the 330, then turn right along the 75 and follow it until it meets the 10 (on the right, opposite a Esso gasoline station). Follow it for few hundred meters, pass some weird architecture (the wedding hall Sanwa) and… here you are, the cafe is on the left (look for the blue balcony).
