  • 相比人比较多的首里城公园这里几乎没有人,300的门票含资料馆和王陵。很意外,作为传承了32代的尚氏很朴实,只有一座石头建筑用来存放所有的厨子瓮就是骨灰盒,建筑很庄严肃穆,尚圆王很萌,而守陵的狮子很可爱…  more »
  • The site has a small gate r soon you arrive at the place where the ballot of members of the Royal family. To better understand the symbolism, go before to the Museum which is in the same location. Some inscriptions in English can be found and help in understanding.

  • It is situated at the edge of SHURI Castle, the former Ryukyu Kingdom Royal Tomb. It is to feel no culture on the Mainland. We recommend be taken in here if you go to the SHURI Castle

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Unique grave site for the royals. Interesting to learn about the history of ryukyu kingdom
  • Interesting design for the final resting place of the Ryukyu royal family.
  • NOT MANY PEOPLE, QUIET AND PEACEFUL PLACE.
