Ryukyu Mura (Ryukyu Village) is a small theme park about traditional Okinawan culture in the form of a recreated village from the times of the Ryukyu Kingdom.

The village includes a traditional residence with a red tiled roof and surrounding stone walls against typhoons, a shrine and various workshops where visitors may participate in hands-on experiences such as pottery, playing the sanshin guitar, weaving a coaster or painting a small shisa statue.

A wide range of performances are held at the village, including eisa taiko drumming, dances, concerts, parades and reenacted historical ceremonies. Of course, visitors also have the opportunity to eat some popular Okinawan dishes and purchase a wide range of local souvenirs.
