Sorry, we currently have no review for this sight.
If you are at all intrigued by the yamaneko (Iriomote's endemic wildcat), it's worth stopping by this natural-history centre. Though exhibits are all in Japanese, of interest is a short documentary film about the yamaneko and its declining population on an island with hazards like human refuse and fast cars. A basic pamphlet in English is available for ¥100.
One of the best parts of Naha is this neighbourhood, a centre of ceramic production from 1682, when Ry?ky? kilns were consolidated here by royal decree. Most shops along this atmospheric street sell all the popular Okinawan ceramics, including shiis? (lion-dog roof guardians) and containers for serving awamori, the local firewater. The lanes off the main street here contain some classic crumbling old Okinawan houses. To get here from Kokusai-d?ri, walk south through the entirety of Heiwa-d?ri arcade (about 350m).
