Be aware that this is a very steep path and at points not clear where to go next. That stated if you are interested in Okinawan history this is a "must do" walk. I've walked this path a few times and always find something new....More

The descent is steep & walking is difficult on the stones. Ancient trees, places of worship and water springs/wells found along the path. There is also a rest house (need to take your shoes off)

This is a beautiful road. It's hilly and you'll get sweaty quick in the humidity, but it's totally worth it. Bring sunscreen, hat, and mosquito repellent if you want to see the ancient trees just off the road to the east.

It’s a short stone-paved old road from the time of the Ryuku Kingdom. There’s nothing much here, good enough to just take a look. There is a cafe by the side of this road. The road is steep and narrow and passes by some houses...More

Interesting walk but nothing much actually. The stone paved walk downhill is steep so watch your steps. Go only if you dont have much to do that day.

It's one of the few things which survived the war. All it is is an old fashioned stone path, but what's interesting are the houses around them. You can really get a feel for how people live here, with old and modern houses left and...More

It was an enjoyable walking path after visiting Shuri castle. The old and traditional atmosphere of Okinawa remains here. The view look downs Naha city was also great.

It is not near to the monorail station or the Shuri Castle. But it is a nice walk in a quiet neighbourhood. Along the way, you may come across some of the historical sites which are not that popular and may not be marked on...More

The start of the stone walk is not immediately obvious, and is on the other side of the main entrance to Shuri Castle. You can catch the Monorail to Shuri, a 15 minute walk to the beginning of the castle gardens (which is... More

Definitely not wheelchair friendly. In fact, even the walk down would be difficult for anyone with any walking difficulty. The stone path is very uneven. Walking up would be extremely strenuous and only recommended for... More
