Miyakojima is reputed as a starfish in Okinawa but also a starry sky is beautiful. If the weather is nice, the Milky Way will be seen normally!
The recommendation is the view from the beach with less light as well.
The starry sky seen in "Yonaha Maehama", which is said to be the most beautiful beach in Toyo, is impressive.
