Leave your flip flops and high heels at home. This is a very steep stone path that is quite difficult to walk up. So my advice is to walk down it from the castle then get a short cab into Naha or its around a 4km walk back into Naha city. Lots of information on the path. Some fantastic buildings... More

A fascinating place to visit if you enjoy history and photography. There are many information spots along the route that explain the roads significance in local history. A nice self guided walk.

This is located slightly more than 1km from the castle and is a great place to take a slow walk. This is also the path which lead to the 300 year old tree.

This is fascinating walk but much better to walk down than up. We walked down and had plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings. Passed others walking up who were too busy with the exertion to really enjoy it.

Take a step back in time with a walk down the old cobblestone street in Shuri. It is very near Shuri Castle, so it is easy to add to your trip. If you go all the way down the road, you will have to hike back up, or just continue your journey into Naha City.

It's a nice enough stone path to walk on, but I wouldn't say it's interesting or picturesque enough to merit being a tourist attraction. I suppose it goes to show how much of the local historic heritage was destroyed during the battle of Okinawa in 1945, that this place is considered a "tourist attraction"... Still, worth checking out if you... More

This is a great place to do some hiking and, visit historical landmarks from the days Okinawa was known as the Ryukyu Kingdom. It wouldn't be interesting for young children and, is not stroller or, wheelchair friendly. The stone pathway can be slippery even, when it's dry so, sturdy walking shoes would be advisable.

I forgot the history of this place but it is quite picturesque! It actually reminded me more of a Korean pathway instead of a Japanese one.
