Nakijin Castle

The Nakijin Castle ruins are the remnants of an important castle of the Ryukyu kingdom. Interestingly,  one of the upper levels of the castle was a sacred site accessible only to women in order to maintain the site’s purity. Nowadays, a museum featuring artifacts excavated on the premises of the castle is located next to the ruins.
