“Teda Ukka” is a spring located in Nanjo City in the south of the main island of Okinawa, and it is said that the sun god has descended, and it is named “Teda (Sun)”.
The legend has it that when the King of Ryukyu visited Kudaka Island, he stopped the boat in front of the “Teda Ukka” fountain and prayed for safety.
It was designated as a historic site in Chinen Village in 1982, and is now designated as a historic site in Nanjo City.
“Teda Ukka” is more like a rocky shore than a white sand beach, and many small fish are swimming in the gaps between the rocks in the shallow water.

INFORMATION OF the Teda Ukkaa
|Swimming Equipment Rental||Nothing|
|Official site||Teda Ukkaa|
Teda Ukkaa used to be a spring, but now it’s gone, and there are stone monuments that locals and tourists visit.
And some people were fishing along the coast.
“Teda Ukka” has a very mysterious atmosphere, probably because there is a legend that the sun god has descended.
I fealt that being a place rich in nature also supports it.
Beautiful rocky shore
Many creatures lived in the gaps between the rocks, and I could see various creatures such as “small fish”, “sea cucumbers”, “sea urchins”, and “starfish”.
