Ryugujo Butterfly Garden琉宮城蝶々園

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.

          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.
