NAKAGUSUKU, JAPAN Cruise Port

Nakagusuku is a moderate-sized village located in Nakagami District and the Okinawa Prefecture. Known primarily as an agricultural farming village, since the mid-2000s the port has catered to tourists by offering numerous places to shop, as well as restaurants that serve regional cuisine. Visit the ruins of Nakagusuku Castle, a former stone-walled, fortress-style structure built during the Gusuku archeological period and one of the Ryukyu region’s most famous castles of this type. The village is known for maintaining and passing down the Tafafu, an ancient Chinese dance. Yoshinoura Park is an excellent escape for any nature lover, and it has a baseball diamond, track, playground, and gymnasium. Along the park is the Gosamaru Historical Materials Library which opened in 2017. The library offers great insight into the culture and history of Nakagusuku and the surrounding region. The Southeast Botanical Gardens are also a draw for lovers of nature and beauty.
