Katsuren Castle sits on a steep hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Only a few stone walls and foundations remain. Katsuren is most famous as the seat of Lord Amawari in the 15th century. According to the legend, Amawari was a sick child that got abandoned in the mountains to die. However, he survived and grew into a powerful leader who defended an oppresive lord and took over Karsuren Castle. Later he attempted to attack Shuri Castle, which ended in his death.
Q: Aren’t those sea colors breathtaking?! The view from the castle ruins was definitely a treat to witness.
