髦民沖繩遊記 #01
本部港の燈塔

這個是我們今次沖繩之旅的第一篇 #沖繩髦民遊記。這個系列預計大概會有超過十篇~ 希望盡量把所有我們今次發現的美景和好地方記錄低和大家分享。畢竟今次來到這麼好天氣真的非常難得,幸好有藍天的庇佑,所以都能把沖繩最迷人的一面攝下,所以我們也不吝嗇,要和大家全部分享啦~話說我們之前其實都未聽過 本部町 (注:本部港 為本部町的港口)這個沖繩名字。今次因為工作關係 所以被安排到這個地方。原本真的沒抱太大期望,因為做功課資料搜集的時候網上幾乎沒有任何資料﹣至少不是一個有旅遊熱門地。所以我們都是抱著戰戰兢兢的心態來試探一下。所以今次我們來玩之後真的非常開心,因為發現到好東西,感覺好像為大家找到新的好地方 🙂

本部町從前其實是一個算是繁榮的航海小樞紐,因為位置在沖繩本島的西北部,所以這一帶附近的島嶼都是靠這裡的碼頭連接。而這個燈塔就是碼頭的重要地標之一。後來因為有航線的開通,這裡已經稍微沒落。不過可能正因為如此,令這裡現在可以讓我們來好好欣賞一番。這裡基本上四面環海,站在這裡就可以深深呼吸太平洋的空氣~~ 這裡除了可以看見一望無際的海,還可以看到瀬底大橋(留意 「瀬」字的寫法)。看上去好像非常遠,不過其實如果踩單車的話其實大概10﹣15分鐘左右~~ 這裡和瀬底大橋是兩個最佳觀賞整個港口的角度:這裡是水平線,而橋上就可以俯瞰~

Okinawa Travelogue #01
Motobu Port Light House

This is the first article of #Okinawa Moments – a collection of journals from our Okinawa trip. We’re going to write more than ten pieces for this collection, hoping to share all the beautiful landscapes and places we’ve found. We’re so blessed to have clear blue sky and beautiful weather all the way through, which enabled us to capture the best of Okinawa in photos. In fact we’ve never heard of the name “Motobu” until we were to go there for work. TBH we didn’t expect much, nor were we able to find much online – at least it’s not very popular among tourists. Given that, we were somewhat nervous about the whole thing and treated it like an exploration. That’s why we’re overjoyed after the trip because we felt like having found a brand new terrific place for all of you. 🙂

Motobu used to be a small but busy marine hub. It’s situated in the North-west of the Okinawa main island, so its pier served as the access point for nearby islands. The lighthouse is one of the landmarks of the pier. Later, as more shipping lines were developed, the pier has now become more quiet. But probably this is why we were able to chill out there. A place surrounded by sea – take a deep breath – and it’s the air of the Pacific Ocean that you’re breathing in. In sight you find a boundless ocean, and the Sesoko Bridge, too. The bridge seems distant, but it takes only 10 to 15 minutes by bike! You can look at the port here or look over it on the bridge – they are the best viewing points for the port.

It was very windy the day we were there. Waves kept beating the breakwater.

Cycling all the way forward and you’d reach the little lighthouse in red.

With only the boundless ocean in sight, we wanted to do nothing but to chill. This is a good spot for pictures, too.

Ahead you see the Sesoko Bridge, which we’ll be introducing next time. It looks a bit far away from here but it’s actually a short ride in between. What’s more, you pass through some pretty alleys along the way.

 

本部町 沖繩 okinawa motobu bike the moment 本部港 髦民沖繩遊記#01。本部港の燈塔 Motobu Port Lighthouse 160712 074134這裡亦應該是著名的釣魚勝地,因為有很多裝備充足的釣魚大叔在表演身手💪🏻 這也難怪,環境又舒服,景色又漂亮。
This is probably a golden spot for fishing as well. Many fully-equipped guys are showing off their fishing skills. With the great view and great atmosphere, it’s easy to see why.

And the water is so clear! You can see seabed and little fish swimming.

Guess what he’s doing here! He’s poising like a golf player (even has “golf-like” outfit). Well he’s actually spreading out fish food, by big spoonfuls very generously. So well-prepared!

Apart from the lighthouse, you can see the town of Motobu against the mountain like this if you turn back. The main island of Okinawa has quite a rugged terrain full of uphills and downhills.

Remarks
﹣這裡風勢可能很大,小心衣物被吹走
﹣碼頭上的地面也濕,小心踩單車時地滑
﹣中午來的話小心做好防曬

-The wind could be very strong so beware of personal belongings and clothing items as they could be blown away.
-The floor at the pier is wet. Beware of the slippery floor while cycling.
-Do put on sunscreen if you’re going in the mid-day.

      我估你要直接問問民宿有無,有既話就最好最方便,如果無既話,老實講,我地都唔知邊度有,我地當時都唔覺有😶😶
