  • I really enjoyed the cultural shows here but we only spent about 1.5 hrs here since it's pretty small. There are a lot of souvenir shops and food options inside (before/after the gate in). I think it ...  more »
  •  Be moved as specified in registered tangible cultural property of the country house. So my aunt is also glad to be talking about. Every 30 minutes there, such as dancing and singing show. Also, wanted to buy souvenirs in the international Street snacks more stock was very helpful. Chin SCO may in many types of salt cinscoa is recommended. Taste is totally different.

  • There was much to see and do here. However, this place is really showing its age; it is certainly looking old and needs some renovations. The staff were all very friendly and polite. The cost of admission was reasonable, but it seems to me that doing the various crafts is the most popular activity here. However, the craft activities are a bit expensive. Still, this place have its unique charm.
  • nice visit for early Japanese settlers life. pottery shop, offered longevity tea... etc. the day I visited was far too hot, otherwise I would enjoy more
  • If you are interested on learning about Ryukyu culture this place will disappoint you. Barely no explanations about any cultural custom of that period, plus you have to pay for almost all the activities they offer (pottery, painting, kimono rental, etc.). The houses and all the decoration was nice, but not worthy the 1200¥ entrance fee + bus to get there. However, we also did the diving tour they offer, and it was amazing. We could see tropical fishes really close to us, and the staff was so nice and took so maby nice pictures for us.
  • Would recommend to go there on a good day, lots of workshops where have DIY classes (cost you around ¥1000) and Okinawa performance
  • The entertainment show, though dolled up to be "touristy", is incredibly fun, especially the "Shisa-kun" act.

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.
