This stop is the closest to Shurijo Castle!
Ishidatami Chaya Madama
Within 6 minutes walk from the bus stop
On the way to Kinjo-cho cobblestone road, how about tea time at a cafe with a good view ^ ^
The menu is available in multiple languages such as English, Korean, Traditional or Simplified Chinese, so you don’t have to worry if you don’t understand the language
From rice to cakes to shaved ice!
Great Akagi trees of Uchikanagusuku
Within 9 minutes walk from the bus stop
If you visit the Kinjo-cho cobblestone road, you can also see the large Akagi trees of Uchikanagusuku, which are said to be over 200 years old!
It is rare for a large group of trees to grow so far in a remote area. It is said that on June 15th of the lunar calendar, a god comes down to the large Akagi trees (which is about 300 years old). If you make a wish only once, it may come true!
Would you like to experience a sacred space?
Arakaki Bee Farm
Within 10 minutes walk from the bus stop
At “Arakaki Bee Farm”, which has been in business since 1954, you can buy original honey from Okinawa and honey from all over the world.
What is the taste of honey from bees raised on the roof of a building moving within a radius of 2 km?^^
It seems that they also offer bee acupuncture (apitherapy), so if you are interested, you can try it! There is also a corner where you can see bees and nests through the glass.＾＾
Kinjo-cho Cobblestone Road
Within 12 minutes walk from the bus stop
“Kinjo-cho Stone Road” is a cultural property designated by Okinawa Prefecture, which is one of the 100 best roads in Japan, you can directly experience the atmosphere of a time-slip to an old castle town.
As it’s a slope, we recommend you to get off at the bus stop in front of Shurijo Castle and walk from top to bottom ♪
