  • I certainly got from kencho-Mae (Okinawa bus many is great, too), I think I got in about 20 minutes. I think admission is 400 Yen. And what was this place was near the city and entering the woods like I was surprised. You can go up to the old Inn buildings, has a pond in the heart of. Want to have slipped in feels like home in Japan during the Edo period. Those who want to settle down even the overall quiet in solo or multiplayer is a featured place. When I went meditation in France people two women enjoying the pond? I had! I thought it a great and to come all the way from Europe. Anyway, from the central city of Naha percent and close is a good thing, so please try. And offer southern town from the Hill on the right side of the pond, the Vista is perfectly!

  • Visit five years Buri is the impression that always quietly but it was crowded with tour groups from Europe. Previous impressions, and such a lovely place on why so few people. It is what I felt. Like the trip to feel the Ryukyu relax admiring the garden.

  • Nice garden with a good history. They charge 400 yen entry but it is worth it to see all of the sights.
  • Don't make my mistake: check which day it's closed! I walked over there for nothing (it was a Wednesday of course)..next time I want to visit it
  • Beautiful historical park in Naha. It's pretty big and you have a walking route. Great to take pictures.
  • Very peaceful, very beautiful. The price is ¥400 so it is more than worth it. Probably my favorite place on this vacation.
  • I love this garden! It is situated in Naha so after checking it out you can go to Shuri Castle to understand the history of the garden. Since it is in Naha the views aren't as amazing because it is in a downtown area. But it is a beautiful place when I was there I felt a sense of peace and serenity, I didn't want to leave. Honestly, it didn't even feel like we were right next to a busy road because this place is truly amazing. The price is 400 Yen and the place take yen only. There is a very tiny gift shop that sells ice cream as well.
