I forgot the history of this place but it is quite picturesque! It actually reminded me more of a Korean pathway instead of a Japanese one.

It's a nice enough stone path to walk on, but I wouldn't say it's interesting or picturesque enough to merit being a tourist attraction. I suppose it goes to show how much of the local historic heritage was destroyed during the battle of Okinawa in 1945, that this place is considered a "tourist attraction"... Still, worth checking out if you... More

This is a great place to do some hiking and, visit historical landmarks from the days Okinawa was known as the Ryukyu Kingdom. It wouldn't be interesting for young children and, is not stroller or, wheelchair friendly. The stone pathway can be slippery even, when it's dry so, sturdy walking shoes would be advisable.

From Shurijo Castle to the end or beginning it is about 300ft or 100 m elevation. Have good shoes, it's not as bad as a cobble stone road, but there is a protentail to slip or loose you footing. Stone road with stone walls. It was scenic.

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.
