Kinjo Stone-paved Road

Kinjo Stone-paved Road


The stone-paved road at Kinjo was one section of the Madamamichi, an important road linking Shuri with Naha Port and the southern part of Okinawa Island in the 16th century. Made out of Ryukyu limestone, the Madamamichi extended a full 10 kilometers. Today, unfortunately, a mere 300 meters remain. One can still find many red-tiled roof houses in the neighborhood. Enjoy a pleasant stroll around the area and get a sense of life back in the Ryukyu Kingdom days. But please be careful on rainy days, the street can get very slippery.
