Interesting place

Interesting place to visit if history is your thing. Not really a family or kids place. Remember to visit the downstairs display at the visitors centre.

If you are planning a visit to Shuri Castle, add this to your plans. It is about a two-minute walk from the castle. There is not much there, but worth the visit.

We visited this place which is located within walking distance to the castle but its a waste of time as there is really nothing much to see here...

This place consisted of a courtyard (with nothing), an inner courtyard (with nothing) and a drab grey fort-like building approximately 100m across (or less?). The photos you see on the internet are one dimensional as it's the only view available of this place. There is a free museum in the visitor centre which was more interesting. Not worth the price...

Of quite limited interest, since the tombs can only be seen from outside. There is a small museum also, but as there are very few explanations in English, it's not really that interesting.

This place is less popular to visit than Shurijo, but just as culturally important. The remains of the kings from the Ryukyu Dynasty can be found here, even though it was largely damaged during the war. It is a beautiful place that any visitor to Naha should definitely check out.

It really is just a tomb, unique in design for Japan, with a tiny (really tiny) museum. Entrance is 300 Yen, aprox 10 min from Shuri castle. Took about 10-15 min to see all if you dont know what you look at. But the lady at the ticket office was nice.

since I had purchased a 2 day monorail ticket!..It is the burial place for Rhykyuu kings,,it served as their mausoleum for many years!..It is recommended that you go to the museum downstairs to look at the urns..Not much English translation, but most tourists were Japanese or Chinese..! Then, you can look at the remains of the mausoleum..which look like empty... More

Very special feeling being there. The museum is just an underground room with remains from the Ryukyuu kings but it was interesting for me. The outside site, the actual burial place, is very interesting, charged spiritual somehow, good for walking and meditation in the same time. Great trees with incredible dense roots in the park.

Tama-u-dun was built in 1501 to re-entomb the remains of King Sho En by King Sho Shin. Impressive stone building if for that time. Too bad it's not included in the Shuri Castle entrance fee.
