Beside the temple is Naha City's only beach. While not the most beautiful beach, it is a popular and fun beach to hang out at in the summer. Lots of locals and Japanese tourists. I'm told, behind the beach and temple is a red light district.
I took this picture of Naminoue Temple from the bypass on my bicycle ride yesterday. Naminoue means "above the waves". My wife brings me here each New Years day for Hatsumoude (初詣), a day she prays to her ancestors for good fortune in the new year. It really is a beautiful spot.
