Uniquely Okinawa. Interesting. Peaceful. Great photo spot. Shouldn’t take more than half hour to walk through the whole park so worth a quick stop.

What a fun and colourful place to visit, the sculpture park is huge and is certainly worth walking around. And for something different to take home, the gift shop is worth a look.

We stopped here on a whim after I noticed the statues out of my car window. So glad we did! It is a truly unique and strange place worth a stroll around for 30 minutes or so to check out all of the different shisa....More

Drove pass and saw this colourful center, what a hidden gem! Lots of photo opportunity of figures and sculptures, a relax stroll around the free attraction.

Interesting center and the focal point is a park-like setting at the foot of the mountain. Numerous shisa or lion dogs of various sizes are scattered all over the place, invoking a very colorful atmosphere. Interesting concept!

This place was so surreal! I loved the statues outside, they just made me smile. We took some great photos. I regret not going into the shop, it must have been closed when we went there. But the park was absolutely worth it!

Came across this by chance as it's just across the road from Yonehara Beach. The shop sells some great little statues, at very reasonable prices (and much better quality than we'd seen in town). Behind the shop is a little park with giant Shisa. A...More

Wow, what a surprisingly fun place to visit! It's right across the road from Yonehara Beach where we did snorkelling, so we came across this place by chance. There is a shop with those Okinawan traditional Shisa figurines (cats/lions/whatever they are), which features prices noticeably...More
