The Nakamura house is a traditional Okinawan home, dating back to the 18th century. It was the residence of the Nakamura family, who’s head of the household was a wealthy farmer. Traditional Okinawan features like the red tiled roofs with shisa dog statues, high walls/trees surrounding the home to protect it from typhoons and of course gorgeous wood everywhere. It was like stepping back in time and it was amazing. The home is surrounded by the most beautiful flowers, that you’ll see alot in the post (haha, i’m warning you!). Tickets are ¥500 but include some treats!
