Scenic Spot Cactus Farm

While driving around Okinawa or sitting at home finding the oddities of Okinawa to visit using the Okinawa Blog or even going through threads in the Okinawa Pin Drops forum, you might come across something interesting to go see.

There's an unusual place in Nanjo, for Okinawa that is, that offers just that: A cactus farm.

You might see some cacti for sale every once in a while on your trip on through Makeman or perhaps even have a neighbor with some cacti in their yard, but this spot where many grow is something to stop by if your duration here is long, and you're in the area of course—it's not something that I'd go out of my way to go see, it was just there on a short detour on my way home from Okinawa World.

Parking? Forget about a traditional parking lot. However, there's quite enough room to pull over to the side of the road to visit and snap a few shots as if you're in desert territory, all the while on a sub-tropical island.

Some of the here cacti grow quite tall.

Kids find this cactus farm interesting, too! Though, some taller ones can be too intimidating for the first time...
