Okinawa Japan photography group featuring unique pictures of Okinawa
Known as a “ghost slope” in Japan and as a “magnetic hill” in other parts of the world this natural phenomenon is fun activity to do while exploring Kumejima Island. Obakesaka is easy to try just look for the sign “おばけ坂” go to the “bottom” of the hill and put your car in neutral. Magically your car will start to roll “up” hill or so it would seem.
In reality the reason Obakesaka works is because the trees and shape of the landscape create an optical illusion of an up hill slope, when it actually slopes downwards.
From Kumejima Airport: Approx. 10 min. by car
