Katsuren Castle Ruins, Uruma

(4.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Head up the limestone hills to admire the design and history of Katsuren Castle Ruins, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built around the turn of the 14th century CE, the castle had what has often been called its "golden age" during the middle of the 15th century, when it was ruled by Lord Amawari, a leader who had risen from poverty and adversity to a position of great power. Learn about the history of the site from a number of panels dotted around the ruins, and take a few moments to admire the extensive coastal views offered from this point, 98 m (322 ft) above sea level.

  • The first climb this? And felt that there was a surprising and stairs as well as and I think easier to climb. -Landscape is slightly compromised. However, it will continue to climb to the top and a green, the sea, and the sky is so photogenic! It's sunny and more pleasant. Parking is across the street, the bathroom is. Near the junior high school to be a great. So most I lump was a temporary.

  • 2 place there was a parking lot but it was very crowded. Many came overseas. I think road has steep slopes and stairs, legs are tough climb. 1 place each description article so read the study. From falls on lunar new year day visit whether local residents had prayed at various locations with offerings were impressive.

  • I would like to visit again before, I wish came true. Free parking is. Admission is free. Stairs are equipped with is the Hill to the castle entrance. Because rain was when I was a little bit slippery underfoot. Because everything is paved not be taken in a not so good walking shoes recommended the. If you have shortness of breath, lack of physical activity daily to climb will be sent please come up to the top. Views are waiting if you climb while watching the Hibiscus blooms well, touching the stone wall on the way! Sea, sky, wind, and streets. Skylar was, and took a deep breath. Charge can power the body. Where put haste might not be. Time flows slowly, calm and pleasant place damp.
