    Okinawa Pref. Kunigamigunonnason Yamada 1130
    Ryukyu Mura is an interactive facility for Okinawan culture, arts and performance in Yamada, Onna Village, Kunigami County. Inside the park, there is a row of traditional Ryukyu houses, recreating the olden-day Okinawan atmosphere so it is often used as a location for filmmaking. There are various hands-on programs such as traditional craft making and attractions such as Eisa, an Okinawan folk dance performance. There are eating and shopping areas in the attached dome-shaped facility called “Okinawa Station Chanpuru”. One feature is that there are many things to do even on rainy days.

    It is definitely a tourist attraction with bus loads of them. It mainly showcases the houses of the past. At each of these, there is variety of activities, but you have to pay for it. Activities like...

    Okinawa Pref. Kunigamigunmotobuchou Yamakawa 390-1
    Located near the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, this butterfly garden contains a restaurant and Japan’s largest species of butterfly, the “tree nymph butterfly.” This massive area is a treasure trove of rare creatures, including Ryukyu tree lizards and the Polyura eudamippus, which has been designated a Natural Monument. The restaurant offers a splendid view of Minna Island and Sesoko Island as well as “gozen ryori” (“imperial cuisine”) that is prepared with an abundance of Okinawan ingredients. “Choju ryuhan” is a dish featuring rice topped with six different ingredients said to promote longevity and served with a medicinal soup. “Motobu gyugozen” features sweet, soft pork rich in flavor. Plenty of other local cuisine is available as well.

    My tour group stopped here briefly for lunch. There is a lovely garden and butterfly greenhouse here. You can see the cocoons and several types of butterflies here. They have set up flower bouquets...

    Okinawa Pref. Nagoshi Nago 4607-41
    Neo Park Okinawa located in Nago City, the northern part of Okinawa Prefecture, is a natural botanical and zoological park. Animals and plants from tropical areas such as Central and South America, Oceania and Africa are grown without heat insulation by utilizing Okinawa’s rich climate and natural features. The free range farming method on the large property is like being in nature itself. You can enjoy an interactive animal experience unlike other flora and fauna parks.

    As you can read from other posts, I concurred with their views that you can miss this place. The admission tickets is not cheap and they charge you for all the activities in the park - feeding the...

    Okinawa Pref. Nagoshi Nakayama 1024-1
    This theme park combines facilities such as “Dino Park at Anettai-no-Mori,” the first facility in the prefecture based on dinosaurs, and the “Okinawa History and Folklore Museum,” where you can see valuable materials from Okinawa’s history. A rich variety of sweets line the interior of the large store, and there is also a parlor and restaurants where you can eat Okinawan cuisine and all-you-can-eat yakiniku BBQ.

    We intended to do some souvenir shopping here but we were there around 6pm plus and was shocked to see that the shop is closed. Luckily there was another similar shop in Naha which we planned to...

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
