It might sound strange, but in Kin Town you can find a cafe, bonsai garden and caves. The caves and bonsai garden are laid out as a numbered tour with 13 sections in all. Passing through the cafe, you go down the stairs passing numerous artefacts and Okinawan ornaments collected by the father of taco rice and his family Mr. Shozo Gibo over 40 years.
Passing down the stairs you soon arrive at the limestone cave. One minute you’re in a cafe and the next in a cave! You pass through the cave with stalactites hanging from the ceiling then out into the gardens. The gardens have been carefully laid out with waterfalls and statues and in some places views out to the ocean.
The last stop is the bonsai garden. The bonsai are arranged in three greenhouses. All kinds of trees are displayed in miniature showing the care and attention necessary to grow these delicate, beautiful plants.
After a walk through the cave and gardens, then you have to eat in the cafe.
Taco Rice at Gold HallGold Hall is famous for their taco rice. In fact it’s a good reason to visit anyway even if you don’t want to see the gardens and cave. It’s all reasonably priced as well with prices ranging from ¥500 – ¥900. If you’re not a fan of taco rice then they also serve sandwiches and desserts.
Gold Hall is located in Kin Town close to Camp Hansen.
