Shrikinjocho Stone-Path Road, Naha

#5 of 256 in Things to do in Naha
A winding cobbled lane flanking the south side of Shuri Castle, Shrikinjocho Stone-Path Road once represented a major thoroughfare frequented by high-ranking samurai. Constructed during the 16th century to link Shuri with the Naha port and southern side of Okinawa, the path was originally 10 km (6.2 mi) long. Today, only 300 m (984.2 ft) of this historic route remains. Tread carefully along uneven ground, past 300-year-old akagi tree groves. At the base of the slope, take a break at the open-air rest house, where you can relax on tatami mats and listen to the soothing sounds of the nearby spring.

  • Although most of the cobblestones were lost in the war, some of them still exist. From the left and right of the steep cobblestone slope that leads from the back of Shuri Castle, the old houses are lined up and reminiscent of the houses of the dynasty period. On the way, there was a power spot of "Large Akagi of Shuri Kinjo", and it became feeling as if it had come to a different dimension as it tried to be cool. There is also a free rest area managed by local people on the way, so you can sit on the edge and think about the lives of the Ryukyu dynasty people. Because it is a considerable gradient, it is careful because it is hard to climb if it is not a great physical strength and cool weather.

  • I went down from Shuri Castle. It is a little steep, but it seems to be injured in the cobblestone when falling down. The vine is entangled in the stone wall, and moss is on the cobblestone. It is a good feeling to grow, too. There is a private house of the tile roof which seems to be Okinawa in the residential area here, too. Some houses have been converted into cafes, and travelers seem to be using them. It didn't take long to get down, but I didn't feel like climbing back, so I started walking towards Shurijo Station for the time being, so I took a taxi involuntarily because there were so many.
