“Ryuukyuu Palace on a hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

This is a palace of Ryuukyuu when Ryuukyuu was still independent territory.
Destroyed badly in the Second World War but now completely restored
The area is very good place to walk.
Please come and enjoy the area.

“Not that interesting to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Sun goes down early in December and got to this location late; Then it started raining. I think it is more of a temple stock than a castle to see. Just was not worth the time to get to it.

“You don't wanna miss the afternoon tea session!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

With an extra fee 300 Yen, you will go back in time when princes and princesses treated their guests in their small rooms by the Japanese style garden.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Had an amazing time viewing Shuri Castle! Did one of the tours and learnt so much about the time the castle was built and Japanese culture. Can't pretend to have learnt it all, so will definitely be back!

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

The afternoon was great both with weather and sites. The castle was re-built to its former self after it's destruction during WWII, and the did an amazing job. This was the third time we've been to the castle & it seems like they are in a constant state of improvements. It also gives outstanding views of the surrounding cities and coastline. Give yourself plenty of time if you plan on walking the exterior pathways.
