Nakagusuku Castle Ruins Reviews
首里城火災があった2日後に行きました。 首里城見物の代わりで来たような修学旅行生の姿も見かけました。 駐車場は無料で駐車スペースもたくさんあります。 入場料はイオンカードを提示すると割引になるようで提示して@100円安くなりました。 無料のカートで一番高い位置まで連れてってくれました。 ここからの景観は本島の東海岸が一望できて遠くには海中道路も見えました。 想像以上の絶景です。 いくつかの城郭を見... more »I went there two days after the Shuri Castle fire. I also saw a school excursion student who came in place of Shuri Castle. Parking is free and there are plenty of parking spaces. The entrance fee was discounted when I presented the ION card, and it became 100 yen cheaper. He took me to the highest position in the free cart. The view from here overlooks the east coast of the main island and the underwater road was seen in the distance. It is a superb view more than I imagined. I was able to return to the entrance where I paid the entrance after about 40 minutes while visiting several castles. It is a spot that can be enjoyed enough considering that the parking lot is large and free, there is a free cart, and the scenery can be enjoyed. I can recommend it.
首里城の代わりに行きましたが、戦いに使われた実践的な城で高台にあり、東は太平洋、西は東シナ海が一望できます。石組はとても美しく、行ってよかったです。ただし、坂道はきついのでカートの利用をお勧めします。 more »I went instead of Shuri Castle, but it is located on a hill with a practical castle used for the battle, with a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean to the east and the East China Sea to the west. Ishigumi is very beautiful and I'm glad I went there. However, it is recommended to use the cart because the slope is tight.
My wife and I loved it here. We got a lot of great photos throughout the ruins. Free parking (but limited) and only a few hundred yen for admission price. Well worth it if you like walking through history.
A beautifully preserved castle with many nooks and crannies to explore. We had fun climbing the stone steps and walls. The view from the top of the Pacific ocean is stunning. A worthwhile detour.
