At Ryukyu-gama Shisa Park, you can create a shisa couple to bring home as a souvenir of Okinawa. Shisa come in pairs and are often posted on gates or roofs of houses, to protect its inhabitants. The male shisa has his mouth closed to ward away evil spirits and the female's mouth is open to share goodness.

Ranging from fierce to completely adorable, there is a shisa to suit your tastes. Located near the Churaumi Aquarium, this is a popular activity for visitors of all ages!
