Nakamurake Residence / Okinawa Main Island

The Nakamurake is a traditional Okinawan style house, dating from the 18th century, when it served as the residence of the Nakamura family. Nakamurake has been designated a major cultural asset by the Japanese government and is open to the public.
Nakamurake displays many typical characteristics of a wealthy Okinawan farmer's residence, such as a red tiled roof with statues of shisa, lion like creatures that ward off evil spririts and are omnipresent in Okinawa, and a stone wall and high trees for protection against the frequent typhoons.

It is recommended to combine a visit to Nakamurake with a visit to the nearby Nakagusuku Castle Ruins.

How to get there

The Nakamurake Residence is located in Kita-Nakagusuku Village in central Okinawa Honto, about 20 kilometers north of Naha.

Take bus number 23 from Naha Bus Terminal to Futenma (about 40 minutes, frequent departures) and transfer to bus number 58. After about 15 minutes, get off at "Oshiro" bus stop, one stop before Nakagusuku Castle.

By car, take the Okinawa Expressway and exit at the Kita-Nakagusuku Junction (the expressway toll from Naha to Kita-Nakagusuku is 300 Yen). From there, signs will lead you to the nearby Nakamurake Residence.
