Shrikinjocho Stone-Path Road, Naha

#7 of 258 in Things to do in Naha
A winding cobbled lane flanking the south side of Shuri Castle, Shrikinjocho Stone-Path Road once represented a major thoroughfare frequented by high-ranking samurai. Constructed during the 16th century to link Shuri with the Naha port and southern side of Okinawa, the path was originally 10 km (6.2 mi) long. Today, only 300 m (984.2 ft) of this historic route remains. Tread carefully along uneven ground, past 300-year-old akagi tree groves. At the base of the slope, take a break at the open-air rest house, where you can relax on tatami mats and listen to the soothing sounds of the nearby spring.

  • From the bus stop such as Naha Bus Terminal, prefectural exit, and Tomari-Takahashi (Tomari-Takahashi), take the route bus No. 7 and get off at the cobblestone entrance, and the downlink path immediately ahead is the cobblestone road. Because it is a really short road, it is better to combine it with sightseeing around Shuri Castle, and in that case, i think that it is better to go ahead to Shuri Castle in the higher ground by bus 7, to visit Moriremon and Tamaryo, return to Shuri Castle, and enter the cobblestone road from the pearl road which becomes a shortcut down the road. On the way back, you can also take bus 7 from the bus stop opposite the cobblestone entrance to the Night Pier on Kokusai Street, the north exit of the prefectural government office, and the bus terminal. If you leave Shuri Castle, you will be on the climb, so be careful.

  • It is not recommended for those with weak legs. It is time when there is no physical strength. However, the cobblestone has a good atmosphere, and you can take a walk while tasting the local mood. For some reason, I feel like I'm passing through here every time I visit.
