Despite the hot summer weather in Okinawa, the cave was nice and cooling! It's 800 metres long, so it took us about 30mins to complete the walk. It's important to have a good imagination to truly enjoy this cave! If you look closely at the stalactites, you can see them taking the shape of certain creatures/characters.. There is constantly water... More

We did a day trip to Okinawa world as part of our family visit to the island. The facility here was fascinating. We started our tour with a trip through the cave system. I have to admit I was very surprised to see the cave structure was an intricate series of underground rooms with stalactite an stalagmite formations and an... More

Even though I am 21 years old, I found the park moderately fun. The cave is interesting for the first 5-10 minutes, but for the 20 minutes after that, you get to see more of the same stuff. The park is filled with little vendors and huts where you can experience "authentic" Okinawan cultural activities such as dying clothes or... More

- If you havent seen stalagmites and stalactites elsewhere before, then this you might find interesting. IMHO, here is quite boring. The cave is not overwhelming and far less presentable than others caves around the world - cave is hot, wet and humid, different from conditions I experienced elsewhere in other caves - less than 30 hour to tour the...

Drum show was great, 3-d movie ($5) very good, Dr fish(dead skin on feet eating fish) an experience, watching pottery, glass, and paper exhibit interesting, tasting habusake weird. Somewhat commercial, with lots of stuff for sale, beer (dark) very good

We enjoyed learning about the island and the culture. The snake (Habu) show was informative and interesting with live Habu snakes. The cave was fascinating with many photo ops. We also enjoyed the Eisa drum, song and dance.

While walking in the route, you can feel the power of nature. Also, the old village shows you their old times hand-craft & beautiful glass work. If you have enough time, you can pay to try all the work.

I went with a family and I was new to island, and it was really nice. Beautiful around every turn, and I'm sure the cave is popular in the summer when its hot because its nice and cool inside. Worth the money to get in because of how BIG the cave is! The food is great, lots and lots of... More

I got there and went straight for the cave. The cave is really large and definitely the best part that I saw. When I came out, I was in a place where there were different tropical fruit plants. Once I left that area, though, it was almost all shops and people trying to sell me things. I didn't have time... More
