I was quite disappointed with this place. A 15 minute walk from the nearest monorail station, the outer gates and walls were interesting, but once you’re in the paid area (820 yen per adult!) you’re greeted not by a breathtaking courtyard and castle building as...More

Must see in Naha. Clean, organized. Take the monorail to the last stop. The Park is about 7 minutes by taxi. Highly recommended.

Great place to take the family to see spectacular views and also see how a Japanese castle was like in Okinawa. Well worth the entrance fee and worth the exercise up and down the castle grounds.

We probably followed the signage for cars and walked a longer route to get to the castle. We walked to Ryutan-dori from the monorail station. From there, we walked along route 29 and 49 to the main access way (Samukawa-dori) to Shurijo Castle, passing blue...More

The castle is very unique due to the mixture in design between Japanese and Chinese. The place is huge and the garden is very beautiful. Highly recommended!
