A nice small free park with lots of brightly painted, large statues including Shisas (Okinawan guardian lions). Great spot to explore after swimming or relaxing at Yonehara beach and maybe pick up a couple of craft souvenirs! Don't forget to look out for the friendly...More

Even with strong sunshine, the brightly colorful art works and smily lion sculptures are still appealing. The photos and memories with green mountains and grasses under shunshine are especially impressive.

Uniquely Okinawa. Interesting. Peaceful. Great photo spot. Shouldn’t take more than half hour to walk through the whole park so worth a quick stop.

Our tour brought us to Yonekoyaki but we were only given half an hour to explore the place. I would have preferred more time since there were lots of colorful Shisas at the back of the shop which I wanted to look at more closely....More

What a fun and colourful place to visit, the sculpture park is huge and is certainly worth walking around. And for something different to take home, the gift shop is worth a look.

Interesting center and the focal point is a park-like setting at the foot of the mountain. Numerous shisa or lion dogs of various sizes are scattered all over the place, invoking a very colorful atmosphere. Interesting concept!

This place was so surreal! I loved the statues outside, they just made me smile. We took some great photos. I regret not going into the shop, it must have been closed when we went there. But the park was absolutely worth it!

Came across this by chance as it's just across the road from Yonehara Beach. The shop sells some great little statues, at very reasonable prices (and much better quality than we'd seen in town). Behind the shop is a little park with giant Shisa. A...More
