I am trying to figure out if I should skip Shuri-jo castle from my itinerary. Why? I believe we would not have time to walk “Tsuboya Pottery Street” and I don’t know what would be more interesting... This will be a tour I will organize to share with other cruisers.

ITINERARY
Pick up: port At 8:00
1) Cruise Terminal to Okinawa Peace Memorial Museum (50 min) #6/54 on Tripadvisor
2) Okinawa Peace Memorial Museum to Himeyuri Monument (17 min) #1/54 on Tripadvisor
3) Himeyuri Monument to Former Japanese Navy Underground Headquarters (32 min) #1/32 on Tripadvisor
4) Former Japanese Navy Underground Headquarters to Shuri-jo Castle (25 min) #3/234 on Tripadvisor
5) Shuri-jo Castle to Tsuboya Pottery Street (13 min)
Drop off: Tsuboya Pottery Street (#10/234 on Tripadvisor). From here, everyone is on their own
-Taxi: Tsuboya Pottery Street to Cruise Terminal Naha Dream Xruise (20 min; 6km)
Our driver will not speak English

Any suggestions?

The Canadians!

We went to the Shuri Castle and loved it. We enjoyed about two hours there. Do not miss the tea & snack for 310 Yen.
On a separate day, I delighted in the downtown covered marketplace . . . for several hours. It even had a 100 Yen store.
We have not seen the Pottery street.

Thank you so much Barbara. We decided to visit the Castle and if we have time, we will stop to walk/visit the Pottery Street.
