"Tourist Hub of Northern Okinawa"

Ocean Expo Park is a massive complex on the Motobu Peninsula that was first built for the 1975 Okinawa International Ocean Expo. Probably the most popular place in Northern Okinawa, the grounds contain the Oceanic Culture Museum, Tropical Dream Center (a botanical garden with 2000 orchids), and the Churaumi Aquarium. The aforementioned attractions require an entry fee, but the equally entertaining Dolphin Lagoon, Sea Turtle Pool, Manatee Pool, Native Okinawan Village and Arboretum are free of charge. Don't be alarmed by the vast expanse of the complex - wheelchairs and strollers are provided for those who need them, and visitors can buy a day pass for the park bus for JPY200. Dining facilities and Emerald Beach are also on-site. Check the website for group fares, operation hours, and free admission days for the various attractions.
