Nakagusuku cruise

Nakagusuku | MSC Cruises
The Charm of Ancient Japan
Take an MSC cruise and discover ancient Japanese traditions. The village of Nakagusuku is in the Nakagami district on the island of Okinawa. Nakagusuku, with just over 20,000 inhabitants, is primarily an agricultural area with its staple crops being sugar cane and white and yellow carrots. The village is also the seat of the Ryukyu University.
An excursion will give you the opportunity to visit the ruins of Nakagusuku Castle which dominates the village and sits 150 meters above sea level. The castle which was built in 14th century by the Aji clan was added to the list of Unesco World Heritage Sites in 2000. In the 15th century, the legendary commander Gosamaru enlarged the castle against attacks by Amawari of Katsuren Castle.

The amazing flora and fauna of the island’s sea bed is within easy reach: an excursion will take you to Churaumi, one of the largest aquariums in the world.
