Description

You will leave the port of Naha to visit Shuri Castle, formerly the residence of the Ryukyuan kings and the centre of a kingdom that lasted for almost 500 years, spanning 19 generations of kings - from the fifteenth century, when Sho Hashi unified the 3 Sanzan Kingdoms, until the Meiji Restoration (1868). It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The current building is a reconstruction, completed in 1992. After leaving Shuri Castle you will have free time at Kokusai Street. Construction in Kokusai Street started in 1953 during the turbulent post-war years and it was one of the first busy streets in Naha, known as "Miracle Mile".

In this tour, Ryukyu Style Japanese Set Menu Lunch is included.
