Zakimi Castle Ruin

    The Zakimi Castle Ruin is one of the Ryukyu World Heritage Sites. It seems that it was once used as a signal station for the US military. It is a small but beautiful castle with curving walls.

    There is few regular tours available to visit Zakimi Castle Ruin. If you like to visit there by a tour, try this.

    The curved and arched ramparts are distinctly different from castles on mainland Japan.


    Such a curve is not found in castles on the mainland. It’s a pity that there are no buildings left.
