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...

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
