Shuri Castle site – Okinawa, Japan

Shurijo site is 1 of a 9 parts UNESCO site (Gusuku) in Okinawa. A rather unusual arrangement really, these 9 sites are scattered all over the prefecture and isn’t all next to each other. The other 8 are: Tamaudun 玉陵 – Naha 那覇市 Sonohyan-utaki Ishimon 園比屋武御嶽石門 – Naha 那覇市 Shikinaen 識名園 – Naha 那覇市 Sefa-utaki 斎場御嶽 – Nanjo 南城市

Ryukyu traditions relived – Okinawa, Japan

Ryukyu was the old version word for Okinawa. This theme park recreated the times of Ryuku kingdom, a cultural type of theme park. It was small, so 2-3 hours was suffice, unless you decide to make your own pottery, glass or other local hand craft. The park was very Japanese, not much English happens here. Well, I was there in April, off peak. The staff were incredibly friendly and very proactive in welcoming guests. Warm and fuzzy feeling sort of theme park 🙂
