Commissioned by the royal family of Okinawa, Shikina-en Garden 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.

  • Frankly can't believe this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Small, unremarkable, underwhelming. Waste of time. Serene and peaceful because nobody goes there. 
  • I came to shikina I heard when I went to SHURI Castle. In the residences of the Ryukyu and anything with Chinese-style buildings. It was a beautiful pond and green around the garden. You can enjoy because there aren't many tourists.

Shikinaen YUI so far from the rail station, bus service is convenient. I international Street along the bus by bus No. 5 and get off at the bus stop that shikina-en Garden, staff. Did not have a toilet in the Park. (They were at the entrance)
