Zakimi Castle, Yomitan-son
Categories: Castles, Historic Walking Areas, Tourist Spots
Head uphill to see Zakimi Castle, part of a World Heritage Site protecting the remnants of the Ryukyu Kingdom. Built by the Chuzan Kingdom in the 15th century as a defense against the rebels of the north, the castle stood as the kingdom defeated its rivals and united the island under the Ryukyu banner. Today, only the stone walls and palisades remain, although their design and structure still capture the imagination. Visit the onsite museum to learn more about the citadel's history, then stroll the grounds and take in the extensive views of the surrounding area. Zakimi Castle is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Yomitan-son Edition.

城作りの天才と言われた護座丸の城。遠くから見ても、近くて見ても、中で見ても美しい石組みの城。石垣の上から西海岸が見わたせる。潮風にふかれて石垣の上に立つと、はるか昔にここから海の様子を見ていた護座丸の気分になれる。読谷村資料館の駐車場に車を置いて徒歩すぐ。常に掃除されていて、ごみも落ち葉もなく手入れされている。Castle said the genius of Castle making Ichigo sitting round. Seen from a distance, close look, seen in beautiful stone castle. West Coast you can see from the top of the stone wall. Ichigo sit round it is blown in the breeze atop a stone wall, and long ago was watching State of the sea from here to be. Leave your car at the parking lot of the Yomitan Village Museum, walk away. Always have clean, garbage and fallen leaves are not kept.show original

Great view from the castle. Quiet and beautiful place to spend an hour or two
There is no castle anymore, just the outer walls really. But it is nice to visit. You also get a good view of the surrounding area from the top of the wall.
Cool to see. But nothing to do.

The view from wall is amazing and the museum was great on the history of Yomitan. The walking paths are mostly paved, uneven ground at the actual ruins. There are outdoor areas to enjoy. Bathrooms nearby along with a play area for kids to run around.
Amazing view of the island, free admission.
