    Interesting to see burial customs of Japanese royalty. Would have been nice to have more translated into English. Lovely grounds in the middle of bustling urban area.

    The exhibition room before the actual site is better than the site itself: in the interest of purity, there isn't a single explanatory sign, only the bare, forbidding stone structure. Which is still interesting in it's own way, just doesn't eat up a lot of time to take in.

    Worth a quick visit. Not much to see but if you love peace and quiet without many tourists while seeing a part of Okinawan history, just go. Entry fee is a bit steep at 300 YEN.

    First things first yen only for the entrance. Anyway, this is a cool place to take a quick little trip before heading to Shuri Castle. It is one of the 9 UNESCO World Heritage Sites! It has a small museum as well. It's definitely worth your time. It'll take about 10-15 minutes to look around and explore.
