Witness the history, culture, religion of Okinawa through World Heritage Sites!


Okinawa was not a part of Japan until the late 19th century. Okinawa used to be an independent kingdom called "The Ryukyu Kingdom".

We will enjoy the history vividly displayed at the castles, the culture flourished with a unique quality, and the sacred sites establishing an indigenous form of nature and ancestor worship by visiting six out of nine sites designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites under the collective title of "Gusuku Sites and Related Properties of the Kingdom of Ryukyu" in the year 2000.

A Recent Review of this tour

Kumiko was great. She was on time as we met at the hotel in Naha, had the day prepared and was very knowledgeable on all sites visited. She had some very interesting local insight which added additional understanding of the sites. She is very passionate with her tours and it shows.
