Nearly gave the Tam-u-dun Mausoleum a miss after seeing the number of 'negative' reviews on Trip Advisor (most commenting on the lack of access to the tombs or complaining that there was "nothing much to see" at the Site). On the contrary, I found the...More

300 yen for a no English museum- the mausoleum itself is kinda old and cool but it takes two minutes to take it in. Don't bother!

I visited the shurijo castle park and walked around to see anything worth to go, and this place comes up. So I took a chance. There is not much thing to see tbh. You can't go inside any tombs, and you just be able to...More

Burial area of upper and ruling class of Ryukyu Kingdom, but these are off the limits for the visitors. What’s to see is very small exhibition with some explanation and general grounds. It costs 300 JPY to enter, way to much for what’s worth.

A simple yet historical mausoleum in the heart of the city. I hope there will be a lot of people to visit this place. The museum is very informative about the details of the series of events for this mausoleum.
