Shikina-en, Naha

(3.9/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Commissioned by the royal family of Okinawa, Shikina-en was finished in 1799 and included on the World Heritage List in 2000. Stroll the grounds to see various plant species grown here, from tropical palms and banana trees to willows and hardy shrubs. As you wander the pathways and along the many ponds in the gardens, you'll cross several stone bridges and have a chance to see a royal palace providing a glimpse into the life of the island's past rulers. Plan your Shikina-en visit and explore what else you can see and do in Naha using our Naha vacation route planner.

  • I struggled to walk with stone-paved Park. The day I visited was done wedding in the Park. Quiet forest garden is tucked away and walk.

  • Okinawa wooden Palace is very beautiful. Destroyed in the war but was restored. This is the place to visit Okinawa culture, as well as.

  • Clean your garden of world heritage location. Because it isn't too wide for a walk just the right size. Detail of old Okinawan home, healed in the pond landscape. Off the beaten path is not at all. Parking is spacious.
