This was the former residence of the royal Ryukyu royal family since around 1800, and the grounds reflect in their wish to get away from city life and relax there. Which is why the gardens were designed to provide flowering arrangements throughout the four seasons....More

I went there during summer. The area is not very big and was easy to walk around. Beautiful garden but unfortunately too many mosquitoes in the shaded areas. Remember to bring mosquitoes repellent when you visit!

I ended up just having a quick look here as I had several other places to see on the same day and very limited time. The gardens are attractive but not really anything spectacular.

This place is very tranquil and includes a picturesque lake, several bridges and some nice buildings. Try to time your visit so that you are there when no tour buses arrive and better photo opportunities will arise.

中国と日本、そして沖縄ならではの建築様式や資材が絶妙に組み合わさった庭園です。歴史的な建築様式美を除くと、これと言った特徴があまりない回遊式庭園ですが、それは見どころを作るのではなく心を落ち着かせるための庭園であることがわかります。那覇市街地からやや離れたところにあるため、市街地の喧騒も聞こえません。御殿でゆっくり座り、庭を眺めながら心を落ち着かせるのもいいかもしれません。 It is a historical garden where the architectural style and materials of Japan, Ryukyu, and China have mixed exquisitely. Although it is a circuit style garden that there are no other features besides those, it is not a garden for the sightseeing, but a...More
