The stone path is close to the Shuri castle, just follow the signs. Once you are there, there won't be any sign that, that's it so you have to pay attention. It looks like a downhill road between two homes. It's an old and nice stone path but don't expect any extreme things. It's just a walk down or up... More

Accidentally stumbled onto this stone path while walking between shujiro castle and the royal garden. That's a good 45 min walk so I won't recommend this during the summer which we did Built hundreds of years ago and apparently the 1st main road in Okinawa. So quite historical

Very relaxing walking in the path road. We have been so lucky to come here on Sunday and we atop by Cats Sounds cafe' coffee shops that is opening on Sundays only. Then we found a model with traditional Kimono to take pictures in a small pagoda on the way. It was a good experience.

The road was very quiet as there weren't many people around and it's a residence area. It's quite nice for taking pictures and walking. However, because of the same reason, there were wedding photography companies here and they just hindered the whole scenery, atmosphere and quietness. So watch out for the wedding photographers. Also, the road was quite steep and... More

This is one of the only area of Shuri which escaped the destruction of the war. Along the walk there are couple of sacred/worship areas still used by local shamans.

It's basically just walking and climbing. Air is fresh but the summer heat can be a killer. The stone-path isn't smooth and certain parts can be steep so do wear proper attire and shoes. You get to see the local houses and how they live.

You start up a moderately steep path paved with white coral stone across the road from Kinjo Dam and end up near the campus of Okinawa Arts University and Shuri Castle, Utterly lovely and peaceful.

We took taxi from Shurijo Castle to the entrance of stone path. Since it's a rainy day, so the path was quite slippery. We walked to a place which has a direction to the 300 years old tree. After that we keeped walking down until the end of the end. I think it's a special experience to feel the road... More
