  • It is an interesting place to experience the culture of Ryuku but there is room for improvement. Ideal for kids to experience on Ryuku's arts.  more »
  • Road June has funny moments, Acer is powerful and cool. Asia of foreigners has become more than the Japanese, but I want to see Acer home the Ryukyu Mura. Every previous undermined me-went on the Buletin, Ryukyu village recently, is easy to see.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Definitely worth a visit, the main show was at 4pm get to see traditional Okinawa dance rituals in traditional setting, can dress up and take photos, Okinawa donut was good to try, 2hrs is good time to spend here
  • Better than I thought. Most of these theme parks are very commercial, but here has 100year old houses and great performance. Fun place to go, especially on rainy day.

Where to stay in Onna-son

Onna-son, the quiet village turned beach resort, has a number of accommodations along its coastline. With the urban area consisting of a narrow strip between the mountains and the sea, visitors rarely have to look too far back from the beach for their accommodation, and this suits Onna-son's guests just fine. Luxury and mid-range resorts predominate in Onna-son, while a couple of budget options can be sought out on slightly less scenic roads. Take a look at what's available in Okinawa, with the city offering a much wider choice of acommodations, and located less than an hour away by car.
