Very peaceful.

Quiet and comfortable stroll. Hard to believe it is in the middle of busy Naha. Not crowded at all. Nice overlook. Grandson loved the fish in the pond.

This garden was once the site of a royal palace but other than that it was unremarkable. Maybe we were unlucky in the time of year that we visited.

Not accessible by public transport , one either takes a taxi or rent a car. The garden despite being a UNESCO site, is deserted . Everyone must be at the aquarium . The garden is quite large, with the lake as the centerpiece . There is a traditional house which one can enter without shoes, guarded by a grumpy guard.... More

This is very humbling ground. So relaxing and beautiful. A gift to RyuKyu from the 36 families. So historical and interesting.

沖縄の世界遺産を制覇しました!城は城の良さがありますが、識名園は静かに時間と景色を満喫できます。御殿の中は静かで涼しく、興味深い建築方式です。ゆっくりとここでもお庭を眺めれます。とにかくあまり人が訪れないので観光バスも来ない、静かに過ごしたい方にお勧めです。i think it's very relaxing to hang out here. you can enjoy the beautiful garden!

A very different experience from Shuri Castle, serene and few visitors. Always worth a visit. Take off your shoes to stroll around the reconstructed guest house and feel like a visiting Chinese 17th century diplomat.

The Park is on top of the hill, it's a lot more chilling even at noon. Not much to see just go there to relax.
