Went to Nakagusuku Castle then headed back up the road 500m to see this attraction. We were not disappointed. It's a lovely little house with outbuildings and a garden with a wide variety of plants and trees. Not a lot of displays but the house...More

Very small historical home and well worth visiting. Remember to remove your shoes once you enter the home. The signs requesting this are very small. The staff is great and we enjoyed the free tea and brown sugar candy after our walkthrough.

It is an amazing home. The natural surroundings assisted greatly in the preservation of this Okinawan gem. The perfect location to see first hand what early life on Okinawa was like. It is a perfect location for photos of the family and truly amazing cultural...More

The sturdy trees have protected this farmstead from the elements. Walking distance to the Nakamura castle. The road has a side walk, art pieces, fire station and flowers along the way. I felt safe doing this walk with my three year old. Very friendly and...More
