Zakimi Castle Remains

Zakimi Castle was built by Gosamaru, a great commander who played an important role during “Sanzan Period (war-torn era)” and worked hard to secure the Ryukyu Kingdom after its unification. It was built around 1420, and the purpose was to have an eye on the power against the King. Even though the size is small, it features the most sophisticated and beautiful stone-built wall and gate among all castles in Okinawa. This is the important historical site which indicates the highly technique of stone structures.
