This is the main Ryukyu head castle, which has 450 years of history and is registered as a World Heritage Site. It has an unusual and fascinating aesthetic which mixes Chinese and Japanese architectural styles, and is also reflected in the construction method. It is also Okinawa's largest castle. The castle features a brighter red/orange color scheme than most Japanese castles due to the Chinese influence, and the front hall is decorated with peony flowers which symbolize the kingdom's wealth and power.
This is a sandy beach situated on the Okaneku Coast, but floats 1.5km away from the main land like a small island. It is known as a phantom island, and it is said that from this island that only appears at low tide, if you pick up an amount of sand grains equivalent to your age, you will find happiness. With the very clear sea water in this area, it is also possible to enjoy snorkeling, and you may spot some sea turtles if you are lucky!
