How can I get to Gala Aoiumi?

Gala Aoiumi is 27km (around one hour) from Naha City. Drive on Route 58 heading North and turn left at the Iramina intersection in Yomitan Village. Travel along Route 6 toward Cape Zampa. Shortly after a Lawson convenience store you will reach a set of traffic lights at a fork in the road. Take the fork left and then take the third left after that. This road will take you toward the ocean and you will reach Gala Aoiumi in around one kilometer.
