I was pleasantly surprised

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... read more

Nothing much quite a boring site. But the crackers that they are selling is nice, you can't get it outside like shopping mall. Remember only crackers. Not worth spending the time there and the entry ticket is not cheap. You can buy the entry ticket from car rental got some discount.

If you are not following their programs or participating in any of their hands on, it could be very boring just taking a stroll across their little huts. Better be prepared to spend some time with hands on if you want to make your trip worth.

Please ensure you go in and participte of all shows, and have plenty of time to walk around visiting and learning how the old village people lived in peace there... pretty expensive but worth it for those who have the cash :)

We went and watched the drum and dance performance. The performers invited the crowd to join in at the end. They also took photos with anyone who wanted one. The sugar cane area with the water buffalo was cool. We had the opportunity to pet the water buffalo and watch him grind the sugar cane too. Overall we had 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
