Ueno German Culture Villageうえのドイツ文化村

Amusement Park / Theme Park

This theme park sits in an area where local villagers rescued shipwrecked Germans during the Meiji period. In the center of the park is a full-scale replica of Marksburg Castle, where there is a floor open to visitors where they can learn about German culture. There’s also an exhibit dedicated to Gerhard Schröder, the former German chancellor who visited during the 26th G8 Summit held in Okinawa in 2000. One can also find a kinder house, which is German for “children’s house,” as well as several exhibits on toys and even two pieces of the Berlin Wall donated from Germany.

          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.
