  • On the morning of the first day of holidays, from international Street went by bus. Thought or crowded, but people at Park walk able. From the Administration people who taught and noticed on the side of the stone wall is kenobolitor! Want to shoot without running off me. Rare lizards rarely seen in Okinawa, it seems. Was able to enjoy the well-kept, clean, calm down the cleanest park. Restoration work here would have been though a lot and thanks, I took the bus home.

  • It is beautiful. Shinjuku Gyoen National garden-like atmosphere. Transparent. Some Okinawan building atmosphere. I think that explore the temple. IMAI bread was trained in France near the bakery it was. There also is recommended!

  • Beautiful Japanese garden, peaceful and relaxing. Place were you'll find your Zen 😅 in all honesty, it is a beautiful place, you can walk barefoot on a pleasant wooden floor in the main house
  • It wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. It’s nice and relaxing, but I wish it would have been appropriate for me to take a blanket, spread it out, and just relax/sunbathe by the pond. There is a big sign when you enter saying no food or drinks, so our plan to relax and eat fruit by the pond was thwarted! It costs 400 yen for adults. It was my last stop on my tour of Okinawa world heritage sites. It wasn’t the best (best is Katsuren Castle ruins—nice climb and views or Najikin Castle ruins—pretty atmosphere and trees) or the worst (seifa utaki, sp?, was the worst if you’re wondering-great view, but kind of just a pile of rocks in my opinion).
  • Very beautiful and so relaxing! Please find a time to go there! The entrance fee for adult is 400¥/person and kid is 200¥/person.
  • Good garden area. Lovely place for couples.
  • Beautiful place to go for a lovely stroll. There is a lot of history to learn, a lot of information is in English. You can walk through the kings house which is absolutely beautiful and huge. It would be a great place to bring a date that you are trying to get to know. I really enjoyed myself here now my husband and our 10 year old son couldn't wait to get out of the heat and go to round 1😂. I did bring them to a castle and a Shrine before we got here on a hot summer day so I understood but I still had to see everything.
