My wife and son went to visit the castle, and it wasnt too packed for a mid week day. Parking is still a mess though, so make sure you plan to either find a space in the garage (which we didnt) of shell out $5...More

Impressive size. I like the little touch of distributing a brochure that allow visitors to collect stamps in 25 different locations within the ground. It became a little treasure hunt for us!

This Castle is well worth the visit, quite a good view from below the hill and you can experience the peaceful neighborhood surrounding the castle. The interior and exterior are all renovated, actually rebuilt many times because of the war back in the days, but...More

建物内を除き、日陰になる場所もないので、とても暑いです。必ず熱中症対策をして行ってください。 7/7から修復工事が始まっており、正殿にビニールがかかっていたのが少し残念でした。工事は12月ごろまで続くようです。 付属のお土産コーナーでおつりが2000円以上になるように買い物すると、1枚だけ2千円札を混ぜてくれます(笑) Under construction until December. Because there are no shades, it is really hot. Be careful not to get heatstroke.

This is a very beautiful recreation of a castle which was almost entirely destroyed on the same site during WWII. It maintains a lovely, old charm, and is surrounded by some original walls and other smaller structures. Inside is a wonderfully organised and beautifully maintained...More

Fullfilled with Okinawa culture. Heaps of stuff to see and definitely a nice spit to take photos there. Probably you will need about 2 hours to visit them all.
