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
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.
After visiting Shurijo Castle we wandered down toward town via the old Shrinkinjocho Stone Path, taking pictures and enjoying the views of the flowers and the many houses with their gateways topped by pairs of traditional Shisa dogs. These ceramic are pieces are half dog/half...More
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
I started from the top of the road after visiting Shuri. (btw there is a nice cafe at the top you can stop of a rest - serves nice ice cold mango chucks on ice). Walking down this road give you an ancient feel to...More
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 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 free to walk through) walk through to the other side to find the path. From memory the path is narrow and between a shed and an apartment parking area. Once you start there are lots of options to explore gardens, tea rooms, traditional lanes and houses. The path is really steep and uneven but really authentic, take your time with the little ones and you should all enjoy (definitely not a path for a stroller). Once you get to the bottom you may like to pick up a taxi to take you back to your accomodation. Definitely not touristy and a very beautiful part of Naha!

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 those with lots of stamina.
