the museum is a tiny room, you can see it in less than five minutes. As to the actual historical site, you can go in the front gate and look at the outside of the building. There is no entrance into the crypt. Wear long pants- there are lots of mosquitoes.

Go to the museum at the basement before going up to take a look at the site. The museum gives good and sufficient info for you to appreciate the site. The actual site is really a small area maybe 6 basketball court in size, you can see the whole tomb site in single view and that's it! Although small, it... More

A fine place to stop by if you're going to Shuri Castle. It's a UNESCO heritage site, albeit a pretty small one. The structures aren't huge/imposing, but they're very complete. There's a 300 yen (240yen if you have a one-day Yui rail pass) admission fee, and this allows you access to the small museum, the mausoleum, and the adjacent temporary... More

After or prior to visiting the main attraction of Shuri Castle, I recommend you make a stop at this site. It is authentic and feels tranquille. They could offer more, but it does put you in the time and place of Naha's past. You can also incorporate this with a walk down hill of a very old street called the... More

The entrance fee pays for the exhibition room and the royal masoleum. The one bed-room size exhibition contains a few burial artifacts and photographs but everything is in Japanese. The masoleum can only be viewed from the outside. It's a beautiful piece of structure but for the entrance fee, I would have like to visit the inside as well.

This is within walking distance if Shuri Castle; however, the tombs for the royal family in the days of Ryukyu Kingdom is always less crowded and gives you a sense of calmness. Compared with Shuri Castle, which is a brand-new building in that it was reconstructed in the 1990s, this construction can be trace back to 16th century. A small... More

If you're going to Shuri Castle, walk 5 minutes from the castle entrance to these tombs and the adjacent small museum/display. The museum is a bit amateurish, but clearly shows that the people of Naha want very much for tourists to learn about Okinawan history and culture.
