Nakagusuku Castle (中城城 Nakagusuku-jō) is a gusuku in the village of Nakagusuku, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. It is currently in ruins. The legendary Ryukyuan commander, Gosamaru, built the fortress in the early 15th century to defend against attacks from the east by Lord Amawari of Katsuren Castle. The six courtyards of this fortress with stacked stone walls make it a prime example of a gusuku.

그리스(?)에 온듯한 기분도 드는 세계문화유산 성곽 지역. 차는 넓은 주차장에 대고 입구에서 티켓을 끊고 나면 카트가 데리러 와서 구경할 곳으로 안내주십니다. 유적도 좋았지만 멋진 전망과 한적한 여행을 느낄 수 있었던 곳. 달팽이와 도마뱀이 많아요!

1853年、ペリー提督の命を受けて沖縄を訪れたペリー探検隊に随行した画家のハイネは中城城の現地調査の様子をスケッチしていました。観覧チケットにの絵はハイネが描いた「西の郭より正門を望む」です。
