Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was just there a few days ago. Nothing particular noteworthy (better yet spiritual) stands out in my memory. Seems like the place is covered in some kind of a permanent tent or tarp or something like that. I couldn't get a good view of the temple. Maybe they're redoing something to the building. Well, a lot of people were here buying those Japanese Omamori amulets that most temples and shrines sell. There were tables of them set out and lots of people around scarfing them up. Either they were on sale or the place is some kind of outlet store/wholesaler for it. At the entrance, there are some monuments - one had a pretty good English description talking about the founder of some branch of karate. I don't know, it was my first stop in the morning and maybe I just wasn't awake enough or receptive for whatever goes on here. I walked away with passionate indifference.

It is a nice place, but there are no guides. Lots of photo ops and some beautiful gardens and statues. Small and peaceful right next to a public beach right down town!

Never knew the meaning of the Shrine. I was fortunate to have a local explain to me and even suggest I go up and pray. If you are a spiritual person it’s a must.

Well, please keep in mind, Shinto or Buddism are not the native ryukyu religion. Shinto shrines were imposed here by japanese occupations. But it is an interesting mix of things here , and okinawan, in their peacefull approach can accept / tolerate maybe also this shinto buddhist sacred place. At the entrance you can find the Shotokan Karate founder memorial stone. Enjoy the meditation while climbing to the top of the hill where temple is located... there are 2-3 ways... Very close is the Naha Budokan

It's a santoist shrine! It's beautiful cause it has the sea above, a little bit small thou, but full of color and meaning. It's s good visit if you are in the island. Remember come and visit before 16:00 hours or u are gonna find it closed.

Most of the culturally significant sites were taken over by the Japanese at the Meji Restoration in the mid 1860's as Shinto Shrines. This shrine is Okinawan for those who understand the cultural and religious diferences. It also holds a Buddhist shrine for miscarried children.
