Ocean Expo Park

Ocean Expo Park Ocean Expo Park is one of the Japanese National Government Parks, and is located along the west coast of Motobu Peninsula on the west side of Okinawa Island.
Nago city is about 18 km southeast of this park.

In 1975, Expo '75 was held in this site to commemorate Okinawa's reversion to Japanese administration in 1972.
The theme of the exposition was the oceans, and about 3.5 million people visited the expo.
