Located at the shuri castle grounds, this is a nice place to stop and take photo and at the same time enjoy the views and the geese.

There are so many beautiful ducks, turtles and fish here! The friends that I visited with came prepared to feed them and that made the experience extra special. Plan to spend about an hour if you bring a bag of food. Visited in July 2015.

After the Shurijo Castle tour we found the perfect place for some quiet time. We watched the ducks take a bath, we fed them some bread brought from home. The ducks were friendly enough to eat from your hand but not comfortable being petted.

You can get to Shuri Castle by Yuri rail and Routan is a 10 min walk from the castle visitor center. They will give you a map with all surrounding sites.
