Ryugujo Butterfly Garden

Amusement Park / Theme Park
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.
