  • Very simple and beautiful. Will take you about 30 to 45 minutes to see. Has some over loping views of the ocean. Definitely enjoyed the castle remains. 
  • It is a pay site. Walk. But trees looks while exploring the nature of Okinawa itself. Very good scenery is visible from Outlook.

  • If you are in the area it is worth a visit, the castle ruins have some english signs with information and the views are really nice. But the village museum has almost no english information at all which was a shame, because there where alot on exhibition. More english info would have earned another star.
  • Beautiful castle remains with a great view. Very well maintained. Great empty hotel for urban exploration right next to it.
  • Great views along with a dive into the history of the Ryukyu Islands. Cherry blossoms are a great sight! Cultural center exhibits do not offer english explanations but the castle remains do.
  • Beautiful views and the Cherry Blossoms are beautiful in bloom season January. Just FYI not stroller friendly.
  • Great place to learn about history of Okinawa. The view is awesome.
