Historic Site
Observe Tamaudoun Site, a 16th-century mausoleum for the royal family of the Ryukyu Kingdom. The mausoleum features three different crypts for kings, queens, princes, princesses, and the recently deceased prior to undergoing Okinawan burial traditions. Constructed of natural rocks, it features intricate symbols of the royal family. In front of the entrance sit two Shisha statues acting as the tomb guards. Unfortunately, the crypts are not open to the public, and information is not available in English.

  • Tomb of the old kings of Okinawa. Quiet and peaceful. Have a small museum in site. Not very busy. Need to purchase ticket to go in. Very eerie feeling walking around as this is essentially a grave sit...  more »
  • Interesting place to visit if history is your thing. Not really a family or kids place. Remember to visit the downstairs display at the visitors centre.  more »
  • If you are planning a visit to Shuri Castle, add this to your plans. It is about a two-minute walk from the castle. There is not much there, but worth the visit.  more »

  • 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.
  • Interesting history, not a heap to see but worth a quick trip
  • 300 yen to enter. It's old but not super cool.
  • An important historical and cultural site in Okinawa, this is a World Heritage, UNESCO property. It's worth visiting and, a good little walk from any major parking areas. Once purchasing a ticket, to enter, forget about smoking cigarettes, until you depart the grounds.
  • If you have plan to visit Shuri castle, I recommend this site.
