  • Had a good time learning and seeing Okinawa culture. The attractions may not seems too interesting to some, but there are plenty of local authentic souvenirs to pick up. If you don't care for the performances you only need at most an hour. May seems pricey to some.
  • Quiet and lifeless place 😪 To be honest, I had high hopes for this place actually. But paying 1200yen for this place of historical remake is really not worth it. Even with the discounted coupon we still felt a pinch. The animals and workers/performers there are just exuding boredom, even the poor buffalo was so sleepy it can't even be bothered to wake up for a photo moment. Unless you are very into crafts of all sorts like glass making, clay painting or trying out their costumes each at a hefty price of 1500 yen, then this is a place for you. If not, save your money and visit some other notable locations in Okinawa.
