The cave is very beautiful with awesome lighting. This is a must see in Okinawa. However the access to this park is little difficult in public transport. Better to take taxi from Naha Airport.

Quite a variety of activities here: botanical gardens, snake show, habu exhibits, native drumming, local agriculture, and a long cavern! The restaurants are not bad, either. Getting there by bus is an adventure in itself. A pleasant way to spend a day.

I live in Okinawa since almost 9 years, but never made it to visit Okinawa World, and finally I got there, I was pleasantly surprised that is was not over crowded as facilities are obviously made for huge asian travel groups spending only a couple of days in Okinawa. The positive: My 5 year old son really liked the snake... More

We visited Okiwana World last weekend. It is very commercial, full of souvenir shops, which I am not quite appreciate. But overall, our family, including my 22-moth-old daughter had a good time inside. Time to spent: I suggest 3-4 hours. It is quite large a park. You can go to the stalactite cave first, which has the entrance right at... More

Quite nice, the caves are amazing. The staff is friendly and welcoming and you can find small interesting things to look at / listen to. It is not very big, but a great destination if you go with kids or with friends.

This is a pretty fun place. The caves where amazing and there was plent of other sights to see. It looks small from the outside but it's actually preety big. It's not too expensive and they have a really cool Habu snake exhibit.

It might look a bit tacky from the outside, but the cave experience was amazing! Do go and see it. It takes about an hour to fully appreciate the cave. The whole place requires another two to three hours. One of the biggest DFS store for selection of souvenirs and local tidbits.

A great, diverse array of attractions for us. The cave was long enough to be interesting, short enough that we didn't get bored. The habu show wasn't spectacular, but it was worth doing. Paid ¥300 to walk through a pitch black alleyway full of snakes. Conquered a fear. Plenty of gifts and souvenirs to send back home. An enjoyable way... More

There are a lot of things to see and do here but for my money the caves are the most interesting, then the glass crafting when you exit the caves. Lots of shows and locally crafted goods including some decent beer on a hot day. This is another of our spots we visit a couple of times a year.
