BMW Z4 0074.jpg

The other day, I went to Okinawa with my friend for a trip.
Because I wanted to drive freely with my car, I decided to rent a car.

There were a lot of rental car companies in Okinawa when I checked it online.
I wanted to taste the extraordinary, I decided to borrow "BMW・Z4".
I felt that the price was low, so I decided to rent "BMW・Z4" with "okinawa speed rent-a-car".

The staff of "okinawa speed rent-a-car" is coming to pick you up at the airport. It is the beginning of a trip to the southern part of Okinawa Island with a rental car.

We ran for 30 minutes on the national and prefectural roads and arrived at the valley of Gangara. As the road was narrow, I felt that the performance of the "BMW・Z4" was being pulled out. Acceleration was good. A tour of the Gangara Valley has been booked. The valley of Gangara is about the same area as Tokyo Dome, and various flora and fauna live in the forest integrated with the cave. The course of the tour is about 1 kilometer long. Subtropical plants such as Gajumaru are overgrown, as if you were exploring the jungle! The stalactites in Ikiga-dong benefit offspring prosperity. It is a sacred place with many people who come to worship from remote islands from old times. It is still a long time ago, but I would like to see the face of my grandson It is considered to be the place where the ancient people actually lived, because the pottery of about 7000 years ago and the bone of about 3000 years ago were discovered. I entered "CAVE CAFE" at the entrance to the valley of Gangara. I felt it was a more mysterious space because it was cool in summer, so it was easy to spend in the cave.
I drove for about 15 minutes with "BMW・Z4" and went to the Niihara (Mibar) beach. You can enjoy watching the fish and corals swimming in the water by taking a glass boat. I was thrilled that I had never done scuba diving. The sandy beach itself is also very large, about 500 meters long, and it is connected to the Hyakuna beach that is adjacent to the rocky area. The landscape of the rock below which the rock rises is reminiscent of a beach in Okinawa. As there was a cafeteria, I entered as it was. It is a south country dining room where the white sandy beach underfoot and the horizon spread in front of you. It is a resort of a southern country. I wanted to see such a view!

Furthermore, I ran for about 15 minutes with "BMW・Z4" and crossed the Niraikanai Bridge. There is a viewing platform above the tunnel near the top of the bridge, and the view from there is spectacular. When the weather is fine, you can see the blue sea and the distant Kudaka island.
I went to the cafe forest terrace to have a magnificent view of tea. The large garden with an area of ​​about 3,000 tsubo named "Shangurira" is a natural destination. A walk route was established, and the time required for one round was about 20 minutes. The leaves and flowers sway in the wind and make you feel calm.

Finally, I went to Chinenen Park. "BMW・Z4" stopped at the parking lot was a picture.
It is a scenic spot where you can see the island, including Kudakajima, the sacred place of the story. Surrounded by the sea on three sides, it offers a large panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean.
It is said that there is a paradise "Niraikanai" in each side of the east. I would like to go.
The area around Sakai Park is a paragliding take-off point, and depending on the season and the weather, it is possible to see paragliding.

I played enough today, so I decided to go back to the hotel.
At the time of car return, the staff of "okinawa speed rent-a-car" took care of "Thank you very much." I said goodbye to "BMW・Z4" I was riding around for one day and returned to the hotel.
As there are many open cars in "okinawa speed rent-a-car", I thought that I would like to rent another open car at the next visit. I visited various places of interest, but I felt that "BMW・Z4" was well-matched wherever I went.
