My wife and I had visited Meiji Mura near Nagoya a few years ago and were very impressed with the idea - bringing together a collection of buildings from the Meiji Era that were representative of the style of architecture and technology and would otherwise have been torn down. We found it very interesting, and assumed Ryukyu Mura would be... More

We ventured to this historical depiction of a Okinawa Village from the 18th century. There are many old buildings, which were brought to this place from other places on this island and reconstructed so that a feeling has been created to take you back to those times! Perhaps for very young Japanese or Okinawan kids it might be of value,... More

This being my first trip to Japan and Okinawa, I was really looking forward to visiting Ryukyu Mura to learn more about Okinawan culture. If you don't know any Japanese or have not done any pre-reading on Okinawan culture, this can be a bewildering experience for you as it had been for me. I had picked up an English brochure... More

We visited Ryukyu Mura in October so it wasn't very crowded, and we basically got a private tour of the park! It was very interesting. I wouldn't pay the extra money for the habu show though. It wasn't very good.

We were disappointed with our visit to this park. The cost of entry does not include any of the many activities that are available within the park so if your children wish to participate in an art event or a ride on a oxen you will need to fork over more and more money. By the time we completed the... More

This is a nice place to get an idea of teh various elements of Ryukyu culture. There are shows almost every hour at the entrance where you can sit and eat and listen to Okinawa music. Buy the ticket that combines a Habu-show. Habu is the local snake. Worthwhile seeing.

We never notice this is a world heritage site until now. Unlike other boring place with ancient goods exhibition, this place not only with many ancient houses here and also enrich them with many performance, presentation and activities. Good place for families.

We rented audio equipment to do the audio tour. There are historical points along the pathway that tell you about Okinawa culture. There are 4 total performances in the day, 2 in the AM that repeat again in the PM. It's pretty casual, you go at your own pace. There are several "huts" that have a deep history shared in... More

I spent a wonderful day with my husband in Ryukyu Mura. Okinawa`s culture is so rich and interesting! You can try to dance tradicional music, play the sanshin and another ancient activities. There are also shows with tradicional dance and music. Of course we took the picture wearing tradicional clothes, a nice memory! The prices for the classes and others... More

The castle ruins that dress the island of Okinawa and offer breathtaking views are a sight to behold. Steeped in history and immaculately preserved for generations to enjoy, these ruins offer a glimpse into what was once a powerful kingdom in itself. The surrounding islands each hold their own rich, culturally diverse heritage yet are bonded with Okinawa to form... More
