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. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Uruma fast, fun, and easy.
Katsuren Castle Ruins Reviews
道の反対側のビジターセンターに車を止め芝生の城跡へ、スマホがあるとスポットごとに無料Wihiで解説が聞ける．本丸まで歩道が整備され女性も老人も安心して登れる more »Stop your car at the visitor center on the other side of the road to the ruins of the lawn, and if you have a smartphone, you can listen to the commentary on free Wihi for each spot. The sidewalk is maintained to the main circle, and both women and the elderly can climb with peace of mind.
小高いところにあります。駐車場は道を挟んだ向かいにあり無料です。スマホ案内できます。こちらも城自体は城郭(石垣)しかありませんが最上部からの眺めは素晴らしいです。双眼鏡あれば遠く中城城が見えるかもしれません。 more »It is in a small high place. The parking lot is free across the street. You can guide the smartphone. The castle itself is only a castle (stone wall), but the view from the top is wonderful. If you have binoculars, you may be able to see Nakashiro Castle in the distance.
Got there right as the sun set and it was beautiful! Parking is also super easy and spacious, and it's really not that much of a walk uphill because of stairs and what not, but you can really get a feel do what people had to go through to attack this castle. :)
My husband proposed to me here in 2017. This is a beautiful place! God is good.
