Urasoe Dai Koen

This is one of the entrances to a beautiful park in Urasoe. This path leads to Toyama Cobblestone Road, parts of which are over 600 years old. I usually walk the park in the morning around six. The birds are still going crazy. I am usually the only person out at this hour. However, around seven the croquet players start showing up on the upper flat.

Across this bridge and up the hill will bring you to Urasoe Castle. Behind, is part of the old Toyama Road that was built by the Ryukyu King to help consolidate his power over the island.

This is another entrance to the park. These rocks are very slippery when wet. You can't see it but there is a small farm on the left side of the path near the bottom of the hill.
