It's a lovely place where you can appreciate local culture and customs. There are many shows a day. Almost every hour something is going on - singing, dancing, playing music. Great place to spend some time.

Ryukyu Mura allows you to step back in time and see some of Okinawa's true past, with all its influences from its occupation by the Chinese and the Japanese. A must visit location. The attraction costs around 1200 yen for admission, in cash. Credit cards are allowed for buying souvenirs and such.

Took a long bus ride from Naha Bus Terminal. The journey lasted close to 1 and a half hours. But upon arrival into the village it was well worth the ride. Very historical and informative.

It's smaller then expected. You can find out many Okinawa traditional staff here. The shoe is fantastic. I like the shamisen one.

Despite some kitch I love this place! When you go there with a kid have at least 2 h or half a day - there is plenty to do! The site itself is beautiful and you'll take a lot of pictures there. Shows and activities are fun both for families and adults, so do not hesitate and go for it!... More

Really, not the most memorable of all our visit in the orient. It had some water feature that was nice. There were some performers that entertained the crowd. Of course there was the ever present place to buy souvenirs.

This was my favorite place in all of Okinawa. There are so many activities which are good to experience for okinawan culture and have fun with family or friends. The show are also entertaining. I've even seen this place on a Korean drama before right after I went here. It's a perfect getaway spot and you can go in rain... More

A fair attempt at showing some of the culture of Okinawa and the Ryukyu Islands. Old style buildings, a pond with lots of voraciously hungry carp, People in costumes together with a show of song, dance and martial arts. There was also a snake show but not a high quality one. Apart from being all in Japanese (no problem there,... More

I don't regret a visit here, but I wouldn't say this is a "must" to see in Okinawa. The village is quite touristy and mostly serves to sell souvenirs, which are frankly not too different from what you can see in Naha touristy districts. The set up itself is nice and picturesque, a few good photo opportunities around; also some... More

Ryukyu Mura was built to understand the culture of old Okinawa. It consists in part of old houses and house-like commercial interests that have been moved to or otherwise reconstructed within the village. There are small music and dance exhibitions (if timed correctly), sweets, tea, working pottery area, water mill, sugar factory, and snake house within the village. There is... More
