Walk ..walk.. walk

Spent half of the day walking on the stone path. Very interesting. A lot of ups and downs hill, and get to see the 300 years old tree while we were there.

Not much to do here, but the sights are nice. I guess being spaceship doesn't really impress me, since all our mountain towns have these kind of stoned path, but it was still nice to see

Oh what a site, just awesome I was here Dec 2013 visiting...My son and daughter in law took me to many great places on the island. The island is so beautiful .... I wished I had stayed another 3 weeks.

This small but nice street is located just behind Shuri castle. Getting there and walk through the whole the stone street can be tiring (I recommend sneakers or sport shoes) however the view and the atmosphere is really nice. Furthermore there're less tourists then other places on Naha so it's good for a relaxing walking

A great path between the dam and Shuri castle if it's not too hot. The path has been restored in some places and the work is still in progress

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
