Katsuren Castle

Katsuren castle was built on a hill overlooking the Katsuren Peninsula. Nowadays,  only the stone walls that were once protecting the castle against intruders remain. In ancient times,  the local government controlling the castle was conducting trade with foreign nations, as evidenced by the Roman currency found during excavations.  The castle site is now well known for the beautiful scenery it offers to its visitors.
