We started at the top since I parked near the entrance when visiting the castle. After lunch at the Madama Cafe, we descended for a while, visiting various smaller paths that branch out from the main road. It's fun to explore, but definitely a workout...More

The Stone Path is not for the fainted but totally worth it!! There are traditional houses with tea rooms along the way to rest. There are examples of traditional Okinawan life, at the bottom is a small museum (free) with rare Sake bottle collection. The...More

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...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...More

The start of the stone walk is not immediately obvious, and is on the other side of the main entrance to Shuri Castle. You can catch the Monorail to Shuri, a 15 minute walk to the beginning of the castle gardens (which is... More

Definitely not wheelchair friendly. In fact, even the walk down would be difficult for anyone with any walking difficulty. The stone path is very uneven. Walking up would be extremely strenuous and only recommended for... More
