  • Third time in Okinawa, I went for the first time. I was just doing in the square such as Acer, Okinawan folk music, so. Okinawa culture, relaxing time! Gelato is delicious.

  • 2 second visit could appeal such as this are no as previously. To introduce a culture centered on life in Okinawa, but motivate interest. Souvenir also doesn't have anything like this. Nevertheless, the entry fee is higher. I think it is worth a visit, as well as Okinawa World No.

  • Signage near the ticket counter "on to-in-freaked out (thank you)". Went inside and in shops selling handicrafts and souvenirs, area dining room. Workshop to entertain any tour of the many old houses, as well as time and entrance of the Ryukyu Mura enters the village in the middle of the market. Bird of paradise flowers bloom beautifully.

  • We really liked Ryukyu Village - it was a glimpse into the traditional life in the past. The dance and music presentations were fun and interesting and we had a really good time exploring the various buildings and artisans.
  • 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.
  • Great place to bring Family and Friends. You can see restored very old Okinawan Houses, you can paint your own Shisa. A very pleasant and intersting place.
  • This place is so awesome. Would go back when I visit Japan again..flowers are beautiful..drum theater was so great
