“Nothing really”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

Nice view. Well-kept place. But nothing really to see. Whatever buildings had disappeared and only the rough walls remain.

“Amazing ruins”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

These ruins are close to the aquarium, so on our way back we stopped by.
The ruins teach us how strong and rich this castle used to be.
Better learn about its history and the relations with Shuri castle, so we can appreciate the Ryukyu culture.

“relics of old Okinawa natives”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

A relic of the capital of old Okinawa tribes. Interesting to see the city walls in star shape, something like those in small towns in northern Italy, although a much smaller scale. I went there mainly to see the sakura trees. There are plenty of them along both sides of road leading to the top layer of the city walls. Should be very pleasant view when the sakura peak season, probably at the last wk of January. Good place to visit if you finished with nearby aquarium early enough.

“beautiful ruins with a fantastic view, worth a trip”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

These are impressive ruins, especially the walls. The view of the sea is gorgeous. You can walk all around and through the ruins.

“Nakajin-jo (Castle)”
Reviewed 9 January 2010

Nakajin Castle is the northernmost of the World Heritage Castle Sites. It is at an elevation of about 100 meters above sea level on a peninsula jutting out from Okinawa’s northwest coast.
A fee of 400 Yen gets you a handy travel guide and access to everything on the site.
It has some sacred prayer sites, a museum; plenty of refreshment stands and hosts a Cherry Blossom Festival during the months of January and February.

This view is of the wall below, facing the East China Sea.
The exact date of construction is unknown, but it is believed to have been built before the thirteenth Century.
Many of the paths and stairways appear to be the original stone material. A good pair of walking shoes and caution when walking would be wise.
This treasure could easily eat up two hours of your time, especially if you visit the museum.
