The area is spectacular and there is so much to see that one day is not really even enough for it all. Our children (then 5 and 6) liked the aquarium a lot and loved the playground area.

WOW. The grounds are beautiful and the visitor gets a sense of peace throughout. We went to the aquarium and walked around seeing the different pools of sea life. Everything was kept in spotless conditions. One could easily make an entire day of this place.

Yess, its a direct translation, Ryukyu is the old name for Okinawa and mura standard Japanese for village. Quite interesting to visit (free), note the house of the female priest/shaman.
