I ended up just having a quick look here as I had several other places to see on the same day and very limited time. The gardens are attractive but not really anything spectacular.

This place is very tranquil and includes a picturesque lake, several bridges and some nice buildings. Try to time your visit so that you are there when no tour buses arrive and better photo opportunities will arise.

Got lost in Naha and found this place by accident. It was a nice discovery. I love Feudal Japan History. I am not sure if the structures are that old but they are very nice to see. I love the construction and the romanticism they...More

These beautiful gardens were once part of the Shuri Castle complex but are now located less than a mile from the center of the castle. The site has been designated a World Heritage Site and it is easy to see why once you see them....More

中国と日本、そして沖縄ならではの建築様式や資材が絶妙に組み合わさった庭園です。歴史的な建築様式美を除くと、これと言った特徴があまりない回遊式庭園ですが、それは見どころを作るのではなく心を落ち着かせるための庭園であることがわかります。那覇市街地からやや離れたところにあるため、市街地の喧騒も聞こえません。御殿でゆっくり座り、庭を眺めながら心を落ち着かせるのもいいかもしれません。 It is a historical garden where the architectural style and materials of Japan, Ryukyu, and China have mixed exquisitely. Although it is a circuit style garden that there are no other features besides those, it is not a garden for the sightseeing, but a...More

This is a must see if you go to Naha. I'd recommend seeing it when you go to shurijo because it is nearby. It's a large garden and you can explore a traditional living area.

We visited the garden at a last minute decision. It was interesting as one can see how the garden was used in the past by the king. Parking is free. Once again we experienced the eagerness of service by the Japanese. They even have a...More
