Full of culture, and interesting buildings, and worth it for the midday parade, but sales opportunities everywhere, which although not intrusive, are in every nook and cranny.

Cultural stuff with different ways to earn your money. Like taking photos in different costumes. I like nature more. However, I must say the staff are very helpful. We haven't eaten anything when we arrived there for snorkeling. They really helped us to find some cup noodles for breakfast. Thanks a lot.

Ryukyu Mura is a reconstruction of a traditional village created in old Okinawan style. Lowset terracotta-roofed bungalow homes were built around a central square. On all of the rooftops there were terra cotta shiza dogs of various styles which seem to be de riguer here to protect the houses from evil spirits. It was a pretty setting with trees a... More

If you want to get some cultural knowledge or experience of the old Okinawa, you may go. However, considering there are a lot more interesting places in Okinawa, it may not be worth it to spend a half-day to go there. So, we only visited the place very briefly.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. It's like a smaller, friendlier version of Okinawa World so you don't need to visit both. A nice way to see how the Indigenous Ryukyu people used to live, a good lesson in history.

The Village is very well appointed and many of the traditional Houses were moved from other places and rebuilt there. Although there is a healthy commercial element with many 'buying' opportunities throughout, it is very well done and not imposing at all. Everywhere they have small performances going, with all the staff in traditional dress. The Village is located in... More

There weren't many historic attractions which we visited, however the Shurijo Castle Park (Ryukyu Mura) gave us a comprehensive understanding of the history of Okinawa. In addition we've enjoyed with the original ryukyu music played live there.

After almost the whole island had been shelled there weren't many traditional buildings left. A few of the remaining have been placed here reap. replicas have been built. Forget about the activities, it is the same tourist stuff they do everywhere, this place is nice because of the buildings...

Travel North on 58 from Yomitan, just past route 12 you will see the visual sign of ryukyu mura which means Okinawa Village. Many years ago, many of the original family homes of long time local families were moved here. If you want to walk into the past, come to Okinawa Village or Ryukyu Mura and you will find silk...
