It started raining halfway through our visit there and then back to 30C glaring sun. We got a 100 yen discount for the admission fee because we had the monorail day pass. The castle had a lot of Chinese influences with dragons and gold paint. It’s not particularly large and can be finished in an hour or two.

Overall it was a great taste of Okinawa and I hope to visit the smaller islands next time because everyone kept saying how those islands had even more beautiful scenery.
