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.

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 is a place that was also not easy to find... but very cool to see. a stone cobbled road in the middle of a residential location. that is historical and yet... functional.

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.

From Shurijo Castle to the end or beginning it is about 300ft or 100 m elevation. Have good shoes, it's not as bad as a cobble stone road, but there is a protentail to slip or loose you footing. Stone road with stone walls. It was scenic.

The stone path is close to the Shuri castle, just follow the signs. Once you are there, there won't be any sign that, that's it so you have to pay attention. It looks like a downhill road between two homes. It's an old and nice stone path but don't expect any extreme things. It's just a walk down or up... More

Accidentally stumbled onto this stone path while walking between shujiro castle and the royal garden. That's a good 45 min walk so I won't recommend this during the summer which we did Built hundreds of years ago and apparently the 1st main road in Okinawa. So quite historical
