Uniquely Okinawa. Interesting. Peaceful. Great photo spot. Shouldn’t take more than half hour to walk through the whole park so worth a quick stop.

Our tour brought us to Yonekoyaki but we were only given half an hour to explore the place. I would have preferred more time since there were lots of colorful Shisas at the back of the shop which I wanted to look at more closely....More

What a fun and colourful place to visit, the sculpture park is huge and is certainly worth walking around. And for something different to take home, the gift shop is worth a look.

Came across this by chance as it's just across the road from Yonehara Beach. The shop sells some great little statues, at very reasonable prices (and much better quality than we'd seen in town). Behind the shop is a little park with giant Shisa. A...More

Wow, what a surprisingly fun place to visit! It's right across the road from Yonehara Beach where we did snorkelling, so we came across this place by chance. There is a shop with those Okinawan traditional Shisa figurines (cats/lions/whatever they are), which features prices noticeably...More
