  • When the sad history of the Kingdom of Ryukyu university lectures and write reports when it comes to Okinawa just knew and tried to see the place. You can also see the traditional costumes worn in time as well as place the gig because and I think the highlights. The horns are cool, you can see the future because of the Kingdom of Ryukyu dance etc think of folk are going to work. Be sure and take a look please note that snake is the show says, smiling.

  • Pretty interesting take on a Ryukyu village. There are quite a few activities that can be done here, such as weaving, dyeing, and other crafts. They have performances every half hour or so, depending on the day. It's worth a visit to see a bit about the Ryukyu culture. I would have liked more information on the different aspects of the culture, but the replica houses were fairly interesting and the pottery kilns were cool. Easy to spend a couple hours here, or a long morning.
  • A re-creation of an ancient Okinawa village, when Okinawa was known as the Ryukyu Islands. It's good as a connection to the past, but is very commercialized. It's keeping alive some of the old arts and crafts, and people in period costume, but so much is available only for additional cost. We only had a short time to visit. More time would have allowed greater appreciation of the exhibits, especially those on a schedule. I didn't take any pictures, not that interesting. But still not a total waste of time or money.
  • This is a cool place to visit if you want to see traditional Okinawan crafts and arts and culture. It's different from mainland Japanese ones. The pottery furnaces along a hillside and the draught animals spinning the big wheels was cool. Also, the musical performances inside the food hall was interesting and many visitors sat down for a meal and enjoyed the music.
  • That was great, a lot of original things about life in Okinawa. That park takes place in nice natural area, music makes to feel the spirit of local history and staff do their best to help you learn that. Only one thing depressed me and that was music instruments in the vitrine which were dusted and in rather poor condition. However, I surely advice to visit that place
  • The Ryuku Glass Village was the most beautiful glass-making site and shop I have ever been to. Here, all the Glass was hand made and there was even an opportunity for people to heat their own glass in a furnace and shape it on a stick by turning it.
