Nakagusuku Castle / Okinawa Mail Island

Nakagusuku Castle is one of the castles, which were built across Okinawa during the era of the Ryukyu Kingdom.
The independent kingdom had existed for several centuries prior to becoming a Japanese prefecture in 1879.

Only ruins remain of the Nakagusuku Castle today, but these are well preserved, and the castle's division into multiple citadels can still clearly be recognized. There are also nice views of the surrounding area and Nakagusuku Bay from the castle.

Nakagusuku Castle is among the sites, which were added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites under the collective title "Gusuku Sites and Related Properties of the Kingdom of Ryukyu" in the year 2000.

It is recommended to combine a visit to Nakagusuku Castle with a visit to nearby Nakamurake, a beautiful, traditional Okinawan style residence from the 18th century.
