Expecting a baby, or hoping to, soon? And hopeful for that precious baby boy or baby girl? Try out Child Treasure Rock to see if your dream becomes a reality.

Child Treasure Rock is located just off the shoreline on the far side of Senaga Island, an island connected by a bridge, in Tomigusuku City, a mere 10-minute drive south from Naha Airport.

The bouldering rock has two holes: An upper and a lower. It's believed that you will have a baby boy if you can land a pebble or small rock in the upper hole, while a girl if in the lower.

While what stands of the Child Treasure Rock now is a replica, as the original was destroyed during the Battle of Okinawa, doesn't necessarily mean that your wish won't become true.
