- Message to Customers
- In the short time of 60 minutes, you can enjoy ATVs, nature, and coffee farms. There is no other place in Japan where you can experience nature like this. People have the idea that in Okinawa, the ocean is the only real nature that you need to see. But we are going to overturn this notion with the ATV ride! Let’s all go experience the great nature of Okinawa!
I look forward to seeing you all!
- I want to try both the ATV and the zipline. How should I organize my schedule?
- (1) Zipline at 10:00 ⇒ ATV at 11:45.
(2) Zipline at 13:00 ⇒ ATV at 14:45.
These are the ways to minimize wait times and have the smoothest experience.
