In order to enjoy this facility to the fullest, is to go to the entertainment venues as much as you can while you're there at the park. I like history so it is fascinating to me, if you don't care about architecture or Okinawa's past, then don't waste your money ($USD12), but if you want a taste, this is a... More

This is in my mind a theme park depicting old, pre-war architecture and cultural aspects associated, like weaving, ceramics and sugar production. The place is small (approx 30 smaller buildings or houses representing architectural components dating back 120 to 200 years. The place was opened in 2007 and it has a bit of a tired look in my opinion. Location... More

This little attraction was created by the Okinawan government (I believe) in an effort to preserve some of their endangered history. A number of old homes from various periods of Okinawan history were picked up from wherever they were originally constructed and had been for decades, if not centuries - and relocated in a common area so tourists could walk...

What a cool place to learn about the history of this wonderful island and it's people. They have recreated the history with buildings and demonstrations of local craftsmen and architecture. Some of the buildings are the actual ancient buildings that were dismantled and reconstructed onsite to preserve the history. Beautiful and fun! fantastic for the whole family. They have audio...

We went on Ryukyu Mura in an afternoon in July as we were done with the beach and wanted to do some sightseeing. It's a good way to spend an hour or two and see some old buildings reminiscent of old Okinawa. Most buildings have an activity that you have to pay extra to participate in so it can be... More

Okinawans are really struggling for identity between their nearly eradicated traditional culture, the dominant culture of modern Japan, and hosting 32 American bases and 48 training sites. We were delighted that our conference group tour took us to Ryukyu Mura, so we could experience Okinawan music and dance. Old houses have been moved here to recreate what you might have... More

This is a wonderful place with tons of culture demonstrations and activities from traditional dancing to music and even a snake show. I recommend following the program closely so you can attend all of the demonstrations, some repeat during the day- but other are only once a day- so be sure to arrive early and plan your day according to...

If you have no idea what Okinawa is all about, then you should visit Ryuku Mura. Ryuku Mura is theme park that depicts the culture and values of the Okinawa inhabitants. It is so much different from the traditional Japanese in Tokyo. Okinawans are not Japanese by birth. As you enter Ryukyu Mura you feel the old village comes alive.... More

This is a collection of historic houses that have been moved here from all over the island to create a village of life 100-200 years ago. The houses are in remarkable condition. The village is rather small and you can do the whole visit in an hour or two.

Where else can you see traditional Okinawan dances, beautiful costumes and even a meal in a village that seems to have been plucked out from the past. If you go in the summer a hat and sunscreen is a must as well as a bottle of cold water or tea, as it is quite hot and super humid with no... More
