Ancient stone path!

After seeing Shuri Castle, Ishidatami is the best place that foreigners can relate to history of Okinawa. There's steep and uneven, recommend wearing comfortable shoes.

Very easy to find once you came out of Shurijo Castle, but we hadn't realised just how steep it was or how many little paths went off in all directions, lovely old stones houses, very pleasant afternoon stroll.

We toured 3 tour sites with lava rock paths that mostly were in poor condition. Don't wear flip flops! We were wearing ordinary shoes and our feet were beat up by the end of the day.

on my way back from Shuri castle, we walked down to this road. It is pretty country side road. If cherry blossoms were right time, it wouldn't be better than any other time.. but still good with trees. The road is a bit slippery when it rains.

One of the only remaining ancient sites on Okinawa since almost everything else was demolished in WW2. We enjoyed the authentic stone pathway and adjoining homes, imagined ourselves transported back in time. We definitely suggest walking down from Shurijo and catching a taxi at the bottom. Pathways go off in other directions but it was getting dark so we didn't... More

It's an interesting alley, but i was bored after 5 mins. It's an ok side trip as i visited the shuri castle on the same day but it's not worth a standalone trip.

Saw very good reviews about it so decided to check it out after Shurijo Castle. It is a nice little stroll but as the road goes on and down the hill. I was thinking that there would be some shops or something other than old houses along the way but once I realized there were not any, I start the... More

The oo-akagi along the path are 300 year old trees that survived the bombing and fires of WWII, but the road itself is more interesting-- the texture and it's meandering style make a nice walk down. A bit difficult coming back up!

I found the path pretty easily, thanks to GoogleMaps. There are plenty of signs pointing to the path too, so no worries even if you don't have WiF -it's very close to Shuri Castle. The path itself is quite rustic, and I really felt like I was taking a walk back in time. I stumbled upon Cafe Madama along the... More

This ancient stone road is easily missed and not clearly marked or publicized as it should be. I heard of this road but only knew where to look for it on this my 4th visit to Shuri Castle. Very interestingly constructed; has a side path where you come across a grove of ancient AKAGI trees, some over 300 years old.... More
